But now, Hope Global CEO Cheryl Merchant says the worldwide textile manufacturer may not be able to wait until a solution for those flooding risks is found with the help of federal and state disaster management agencies.

Hope Global may have to take its operations to another community or even out of state to meet its growing operational needs, Merchant said Friday.
