Sears to Cut 100 Employees at HQ

Sears Holdings is reportedly laying off 100 employees from its headquarter offices in Hoffman Estates, Ill.
     The news was reported mid-month 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."

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