MORRISTOWN, NJ - The Morris County Board of Freeholders is offering job guidance and assistance to those laid off by the abrupt closing of Sam's Club in Mount Olive.

The Morris County Board of Freeholders announced that there is assistance available to any Morris County resident who lost their jobs this week to the abrupt closing of Sam's Club in Mount Olive.  The company also closed stores in Linden and West Windsor as part of a nationwide move by the company. Hundreds of state residents lost their jobs.

“This is a very difficult time for some of our residents who had no expectation of being put out of work so suddenly, and who are obviously reeling from the store closings,’’ said Freeholder Director Doug Cabana. “Our county agencies are available to help those employees to find new jobs, receive needed re-training, and get the personal assistance they may need as they seek new employment.’’
