Sampson Economic Development Commission provided a revolving loan to Garland Apparel Group LLC of $75,000. The company purchased the old Brooks Brothers facility located in Garner. Garland Apparel expects that it will hire over 200 employees in the next three years. The news of the loan came a few weeks after an Aug. 19 press release from the North Carolina Department of Commerce announced that the North Carolina Rural Infrastructure Authority approved 21 grant requests, including one for Garland Apparel Group for the reuse of their 78,000 square foot building. The grant totaled $250,000.
