MILTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Dozens of employees of a grocer and distribution warehouse in Milton are coming together to fight for their jobs.

The Supervalu Center in Milton plans to consolidate with a distribution center in Pennsylvania, which could cost more than 90 people their jobs.

Most of the employees have been with the company for more than 30 years. They came together Saturday afternoon to discuss the situation. They say the possibility of losing their jobs is indescribable.

"It's a sad day in my life, it really is," Barry Daily, a Supervalu employee, said. "I've invested most of my life in the company and then they're just closing and leaving us all behind."

"I got to tell you we're not just going to roll over and accept the fact that their closing," Ken Hall with the Teamsters Union said. "We're going to fight. We're going to bring this to the attention of public in West Virginia."

Union members say they'll do whatever it takes to keep the doors open.
