Ahold to lay off 120 in central offices

Ahold USA on Thursday confirmed an internal restructuring effort likely to result in the elimination of 120 jobs at its support offices in Carlisle, Pa., and Quincy, Mass.

The layoffs would represent approximately 6% of the retailer's staff. The layoffs will not affect workers at the company's banners but would impact shared services including marketing, human resources and legal.

“Today’s announcement is the next step in our work to make Ahold USA better able to serve our customers," the company said in a statement. "These changes build on the successful steps we’ve taken in other parts of our operations to lower prices, limit costs and make our decision-making quicker and less complex.  Unfortunately, this means we will need to eliminate a small percentage of AUSA support center positions, a decision that we do not take lightly."
