Shelter Insurance to close Cape branch

Friday, December 13, 2002

Shelter Insurance Cos. will close its Cape Girardeau branch claims office and consolidate the Cape Girardeau claims operations into the companies' branch office in St. Louis, the company recently announced.

The closing, which affects about 11 employees, will take effect Feb. 1. The Cape Girardeau office is at 20 S. Mount Auburn Road.

Pat Gruber, Shelter's vice president of claims, said the employees would be offered positions as resident adjusters and work out of their homes, or they would be offered a severance payment when the office closes.
