Lowe’s to OUTSOURCE delivery service, layoff HUNDREDS across the country?


Lowe’s is at it again. According to this ABC news report, the home improvement giant is ready to outsource their delivery service to a third party operator. Lowe’s has declined to release how many jobs will be affected by the move but my guess is hundreds.

The North Carolina-based Lowe’s has announced a further reduction in jobs.

The Charlotte Observer reports the home-improvement retailer confirmed Thursday that it will lay off an undisclosed number of delivery workers across the country, as the company shifts to third-party delivery.

Lowe’s Cos. said in an email that it had been using a combination of delivery services at the affected stores, which are in markets where increased delivery demand exceeds current capacity. Those markets have not been identified.
