WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU) Fiskars told workers that its Wausau and Sauk City locations are closing. The scissor and arts and crafts manufacturer is moving operations to another plant in Mississippi. It's part of a bigger plan to consolidate their craft, garden, and school supply divisions.

Operations in Sauk City will end by the end of this year. The Wausau facility will shut down by May, 2011. In all, 115 jobs will be leaving Wisconsin, 50 of them from Wausau.

The company will offer severance packages to its employees
