GREENWOOD, Miss. (AP) - The new owner of Delta Distributing Company is moving the Greenwood warehouse and distribution operations to an existing facility in Leland.

Delta Distributing, the longtime family owned Greenwood beverage distribution company, was acquired by Meridian-based Mitchell Distributing in a deal that closed at the end of last month.

Mitchell Distributing President Adam Mitchell tells The Greenwood Commonwealth (http://bit.ly/1yPtekc ) the Greenwood distribution facility is for sale.

Mitchell says most Delta Distributing employees have been offered positions in Leland and that an additional employee from Greenwood has been hired with the company.

Delta Distributing distributed AnheuserBusch, Red Bull and other beverages in Leflore, Carroll, Grenada, Montgomery and Yalobusha counties.

Mitchell will be the second-largest AnheuserBusch distributorship in Mississippi, serving 32 counties and handling about onethird of all AnheuserBusch sales in the state.
