They told us in a meeting today nine distribution centers are grouped together for a “sale to lease” deal where an investment group buys the property but is contacted to rent it to Supervalu, an asset shift that frees up more money for the benefit of the company pursuing more business. They are reducing twelve isles of product that are slow movers and sending them to Joliet warehouse. Second shift is not going to pick anymore and will do various loading , cross dock, who knows what. They want twenty people to take a severance package to prevent them from “going back to the drawing board”. After the ideal of twenty people quitting is achieved they say we will rebid
So sorry to hear that.
