Barnes & Noble slashing workforce

Posted online

Following a disappointing holiday season, Barnes & Noble is laying off an unspecified number of employees, according to a spokesperson.

The spokesperson said the cuts would mostly affect cashiers and digital product associates.

“[Barnes & Noble] has been reviewing all aspects of the business, including our labor model. Given our sales decline this holiday, we’re adjusting staffing so that it meets the needs of our existing business and our customers. As the business improves, we’ll adjust accordingly. We want to assure our customers that this will not affect our commitment to customer service,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
