ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Cooper Tire is laying groundwork now for how it will try to sell its Albany plant when it closes later this year.

Last week, the company brought in as many as five brokers to lay out how they might market the property. They'll get proposals from all of the brokers before deciding who will represent the company.

The first group of 500 Cooper workers were laid off in March. Another two groups of employees will be out of a job by June. Cooper Tire employed 1,400 people before the decision was made late last year to close the Albany plant.
