The New Hampshire-based company's Birmingham Logistics LLC said that it could begin layoffs at the facility as soon as August 28, according to AL.com.

Whether C&S actually closes the warehouse depends on whether grocer Belle Foods continues to use the wholesale grocery distributor, according to the Birmingham Business Journal.
