retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal reports that Target’s decision to expand its grocery operations and invest in its own distribution network, including an Iowa warehouse that is serving some of its Illinois stores, has forced Supervalu to offer buyouts to 57 employees at one of its own Illinois facilities that will be losing some of the business it has been doing with Target.

According to the story, “The buyout offers of a one-time lump-sum payment were made Monday, and employees have until early next week to decide.”
KC's View:
More tumult at Supervalu. Go figure.

This week, buyouts. next week, layoffs?

Just asking.
