Sara Lee Corp. said Friday it plans to close its massive Greenville County bread-making factory at 1916 Piedmont Highway by early next year in response to the loss of one of its major customers, putting about 200 people out of work.  

Mike Cummins, director of corporate communications for Downers Grove, Ill.-based Sara Lee, said the company on Thursday gave employees at the plant their Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act notices, a 60-day notification enforced by the U.S. Department of Labor.  

Cummins said some of the affected employees will be offered jobs at other company facilities, but most will be laid off. Those employees are being offered severance packages and transitional services.
