SuperValu plans to cut 1,100 jobs

Supervalu plans to eliminate 1,100 jobs as it trims costs amid falling sales.

The cuts, which will come from the grocery chain’s corporate and store support offices, include current positions and open jobs that won’t be filled, the company said last week in a statement. The reductions represent about 3.1 percent of the workforce for the company, which has about 35,000 employees.

The company has eliminated jobs and accelerated price cuts at stores as it struggles to keep pace with discounters including Wal-Mart and Target. Supervalu sales have fallen for three straight years.

Association spokesman Bill Baker told The Elkhart Truth it was the industry’s best February since 2008.
