Target Corp. said it was wiping out 3,100 headquarters jobs, including laying off 1,700 people, with most learning their fate Tuesday.
The company Tuesday morning elaborated for the first time on a plan announced last week to eliminate “several thousand” jobs, chiefly at its corporate offices in downtown Minneapolis and Brooklyn Park. In addition to the layoffs, Target said 1,400 open jobs will be closed and unfilled.
“Today is a very difficult day for the Target team, but we believe these are the right decisions for the company,” the company said in a statement.
