Retail giant Hudson's Bay Company announced in late 2013 after acquiring Saks Fifth Avenue that it planned to consolidate some of its operations at the Aberdeen Saks distribution center, according to the Baltimore Business Journal.
The layoffs will take place until July 30, according to The Baltimore Sun, which reported the reduction in force would impact 70 percent of the Aberdeen center's employees, calling into question the future of the center.
Now, some of the jobs are moving from Aberdeen to Wilkes-Barre, PA, The Times-Leaderreported.
Lord & Taylor, which is also owned by Hudson's Bay Company, announced this week that it would be adding 140 positions to its call center in Wilkes-Barre. According to The Times-Leader, Aberdeen workers were given an opportunity to apply for the receiving and processing positions.
