One Kings Lane lays off staff

San Francisco – It’s not a good time to be on staff at a flash sale site, or whatever they are calling themselves now.

The company, which has raised a total of a whopping $225 million in funding, has seen at least four top executives leave this year, including Doug Mack, the former ceo, according to the article.

Other ecommerce sites are under stress as well: New York-based Fab.comhas had multiple rounds of layoffs, including last month, when it fired a third of its remaining staff.
