HAMPSTEAD, Md. (AP) - The mayor of Hampstead says he’s waiting to hear how the takeover of locally based Jos. A. Bank Clothiers Inc. will affect the company’s nearly 800 jobs in the area.

Chris Nevin told the Carroll County Times (https://bit.ly/1i49vHg ) Wednesday that neither Jos. A Bank nor Men’s Wearhouse Inc. has reached out to town officials about how their merger will affect employment in Hampstead.

The companies announced on Tuesday that Fremont, Calif.-based Men’s Wearhouse would buy Jos. A Bank for $1.8 billion.

Nevin says Hampstead has weathered previous changes in its industrial base. Black & Decker sold its Hampstead facility in the late 1990s, resulting in hundreds of job losses.

The food seasonings company Fuchs (fewks) North America is planning to move its corporate headquarters to Hampstead from neighboring Baltimore County.
