Cool Cars, Hot Jobs


Abstract:
This special NORTH CAROLINA magazine community profile supplement discusses Cabarrus County. Although the county has a diversified economy, two plants that were pillars of the economy closed recently and dealt the county a blow. Pillowtex shutdown completely, and Corning, Inc., halted production and furloughed 800 employees. However, retail growth, an airport that is the state's fourth busiest, and being a mecca for motorsports is helping the county rebound. County residents enjoy ample opportunities for education and outstanding healthcare.
