Kroger to lay off store employees amid improvement attempts

Kroger Co. (KR.N) is considering to cut jobs of several store employees holding middle management roles amidst the supermarket chain’s push to improve delivery and in-store technology.

“As part of ongoing talent management, many store operating divisions are evaluating middle management roles and team structures with an eye toward keeping resources close to the customer,” a Kroger spokesperson said in an e-mailed statement.

Over the past couple of years, Kroger has been expanding home delivery, curbside pickup, and self-checkout services, apart from investing heavily in technology to speed up its delivery operations with robot-operated warehouses.

The spokesperson said store divisions operate independently, but Kroger is taking steps to ensure it has the right talent in the right store leadership positions.
