business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Philadelphia Business Journal reports that Supervalu-owned Acme Markets plans to lay off 900 employees “to align its work force with sales volume.”

In a statement, Acme President Dan Sanders said, “Unfortunately, we have more associates than we need to serve our current level of sales, and we must take immediate action to change our business.” However, the company also said that the move “does not change Acme’s overall commitment to the Delaware Valley.”

It is reported that the cuts will primarily affect part-time employees with the least seniority.
