Komar Sleepwear is closing in McAlester. The sewing plant is scheduled to close its doors in September.

More than 100 workers will have to find new jobs. The company's president visited the plant Monday to deliver the news. He blames competition from imports.

The remainder of Komar's workers will remain on the payroll, mostly in shipping and distribution.
