PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - PepsiCo has announced that it is closing beverage warehouses in Portland and Augusta, but most of the 100 affected employees are expected to be offered jobs elsewhere within the company.

A company spokeswoman called it a difficult decision made to “improve efficiency, fund future investments and be more competitive.”

The company will provide outplacement services to employees who are not offered or do not accept other positions.

Employees say the closures are scheduled for the end of October.

PepsiCo’s beverage warehouse in Auburn will remain open.
