Gannett Publishing Services is shutting down its production facility on 3500 North Executive Drive in Appleton. 137 employees are affected by the closure. 

Gannett sent a letter to the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development on Tuesday. It said the company sent written notices to the workers who are losing their jobs on Monday. The permanent layoffs will happen sometime between May 1st and May 15th.

The Bay Area Rapid Response Team will offer services to help the workers, who are not represented by a labor union, begin their search for another job.
