Sears Canada to cut 624 jobs
(Reuters) - Struggling department store operator Sears Canada Inc (SCC.TO: Quote) said it would cut 624 jobs as it reorganizes its business.
The job cuts will primarily affect mid-tier employees within its full-line stores, resulting in an average reduction of five employees per store, the company said on Wednesday.
Sears Canada, controlled by Sears Holdings Corp (SHLD.O: Quote), said earlier in January it would cut 7 percent of its workforce.
At that time the company said it would have about 20,000 employees after the planned jobs cuts.
