Layoff Day Arrives For Best Buy
Best Buy announced last month that it would lay off headquarters employees, after not enough workers said yes to its offer of a buyout. The company said Jan. 27 that the layoffs would come Feb. 19, which is Thursday.
It is unknown how many employees will be laid off. After the CE retail giant offered buyouts to employees at its Richfield, Minn., headquarters, around 500 employees accepted, which was fewer than the amount required to avoid layoffs.
