Target Lays Off 150 Workers From Headquarters

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Target said on Wednesday it let 150 employees go from its corporate headquarters.

The company said the cuts were necessary to “eliminate duplications” and because of shifting roles to focus on its top priorities.

Target said its goal is meeting its increasing number of digitally savvy customers. Target also said it will be aggressively seeking e-commerce and technology workers to help in areas like mobile sales, site merchandising and user experience.

Target wouldn’t detail specifically which department the layoffs were in.
