Sears to cut 100 employees at headquarters

Hoffman Estates, Ill. - Sears Holdings is reportedly laying off 100 employees from its headquarter offices here.

The news was reported midday by several major news agencies around the country.

HTT's calls to Sears Holdings spokesman Chris Brathwaite were not returned at press time.

But The Chicago Tribune quoted Brathwaite as confirming the news. "These decisions are never easy, but they are necessary as part of our efforts to transform the company," he told the newspaper, adding that the jobs being cut "included a mix of different positions."

"These changes were not in any one department," Brathwaite added.

The company now employs 6,000 at its headquarters, according to published reports.
