Supervalu Cutting 39 Marketing Jobs Across Company
In its latest round of restructuring, Supervalu is eliminating 39 marketing positions across the company. Spokesman Mike Siemienas told Progressive Grocer that the move will aim to “improve core processes, eliminate redundancies, create efficiencies, and better integrate the entire marketing team.”
All marketing associates have been notified about the job reductions, which Siemienas said will take place “over the next several weeks,” based on position level.
When asked by PG whether further job cuts or debt-lowering measures were in the offing, Siemienas said that the company was "continually assessing" its business and staffing structure.
The most recent job reduction comes on the heels of Supervalu's announcement last month that it would cut between 2,200 and 2,500 jobs at its Albertsons division in California and Nevada, which represent roughly 13 percent of the banner's store-level workforce in those states.
Last February, meanwhile, the Minneapolis-based retailer and distributor said it would eliminate about 800 positions from its corporate and regional offices, as part of an ongoing effort to reduce operating costs and enhance its stores' pricing strategies.
