More on Lowe’s layoffs

A spokeswoman with Lowe’s has provided more information about how layoffs for the home improvement chain will impact local employees.

Corporate Public Relations Manager Karen Cobb says the company will be shifting some roles and responsibilities versus eliminating them, and she says this will give current associates the opportunity for new roles at Lowe’s.

“Unfortunately, the store model will also result in the reduction of approximately one to two assistant store manager positions per store,” Cobb explains.

Cobb adds these changes are being made to invest in the future of Lowe’s as they “continue to respond to the dramatic shifts that are reshaping the retail landscape.” She continues that while Lowe’s had a strong financial position, the stores are constantly evolving to ensure the best experience for customers.
