Silver Dollar City has furloughed 257 employees due to the COVID-19 lockdown.
A press release stated that employees will be impacted at a number of facilities: Silver Dollar City Theme Park, Silver Dollar City Campground, Showboat Branson Belle, and WhiteWater.
The impacted employees have all been notified that furloughs are in effect as of April 20, 2020. All remaining employees will be given a 50% pay cut.
The CEO of Silver Dollar City’s parent company and the Chairman of the Board for Herschend Enterprises are not taking any salary until the properties reopen.
