A massive retailer closes locations and now begins layoffs according to the latest Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification filings.

Target Corporation’s recent announcement of the permanent closure of two Washington stores, leading to a mass layoff of 90 employees, sheds light on the growing challenges faced by retailers.

The decision, driven by concerns over organized retail crime and theft, signals a broader issue impacting the retail sector.

The closure of Target stores in Seattle University Way and Seattle Ballard, scheduled for December 30th, has been disclosed through the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) system.

This strategic move is a response to Target’s ongoing assessment of store performance and the rising hurdles posed by theft and organized retail crime.

According to Capital One’s report, retail experienced a significant revenue loss of $94.5 billion in 2021, with external theft, including shoplifting and organized retail crime, contributing to 37% of the total losses.

The report highlights the escalation of retail theft value due to currency inflation, a factor exacerbating the challenges faced by retailers.

In 2022, Washington state’s retail sector suffered substantial losses, witnessing a $1.685 billion decrease in revenue attributed to theft.

Each resident accounted for an average of $274.43 in lost sales, emphasizing the economic consequences of theft. Felony-level thefts of $750 or more added gravity to the situation, portraying the severity of the issue in the state.

Return fraud further intensified the impact, causing an estimated $1.830 billion in lost sales revenue and contributing to a total retail loss of $3.515 billion.

Layoffs and closures within the retail industry continue to be ongoing and developing stories.
