Lowe's further reduces U.S. workforce

Lowes Canada

Lowe’s has confirmed it is continuing to reduce its U.S. workforce, announcing that “an undisclosed number of delivery workers nationwide” will be made redundant due to the outsourcing of their work, according to The Charlotte Observer.

With its head office near Charlotte in Mooreseville, North Carolina, Lowe's told the Charlotte newspaper that the latest job cuts are a reaction to “the growing demand for timely delivery,’ including next-day delivery.” The layoffs are at stores “in markets where the increased demand for delivery exceeds Lowe’s current capacity,” the article says.

The big-box retailer has already reduced their U.S. workforce by over 3,000 this year, including in-store positions and corporate headquarters jobs, and moved others to India.

Lowe’s currently operates over 2,000 retail stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.
