Hickey-Freeman Adding Clothing Line

Rochester clothing manufacturer Hickey-Freeman is adding a clothing line and new jobs this month, and could add more employees by the end of the year to meet the demand of a new marketing campaign.

It was not long ago there were fears the local plant could close because of financial troubles at its parent company.

WXXI News will be on hand for a rare tour the local facility is hosting today. Listen for a full report beginning at 4:00 during All Things Considered only on WXXI-AM 1370.
