Shaw’s Supermarkets to cut 700 jobs
Cuts affect just under 4 percent of grocery chain’s employees
Shaw’s Supermarkets, a 169-store chain based in West Bridgewater, said it plans to cut 700 jobs, or just under 4 percent of its total employee headcount. Total headcount after the reduction will be about 17,000, a company spokesman said, and there are no plans to close any stores. About 90 employees have been informed that they’re being laid off, and the rest will be notified over the next several days, Shaw’s said.
