A new wave of unexpected layoffs now hits Ohio as more businesses file WARN notices advising of upcoming job cuts.
It’s important to note that under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, an employer with more than 100 full-time workers must provide a 60-day notice before laying off 50 or more people at a single site.
The latest business to file a WARN notice in Ohio is tech company Zulily.
The company is closing its warehouse in Ohio resulting in 274 staff losing their jobs in Lockbourne by February 7.
Zulily was founded in 2010 and was once seen as a competitor to Amazon.
By 2014, it was doing over one billion dollars in sales; only Amazon and Old Navy had hit the billion-dollar revenue mark in a shorter time.
The business is also closing offices in Nevada and Washington, which will see another 500 people lose their jobs.
So far in 2023, there has been approximately 7,176 layoffs in Ohio across 76 businesses according to the latest WARN data.
California remains the #1 state with the most layoffs in the country.

- Mansfield Plumbing Products, LLC. 263 job cuts by 12/31.

An unexpected shoe retailer now permanently closes one of its popular stores with more locations expected to shutter soon.
The New Balance store in Fairview Heights, Illinois is shutting its doors for good in just days following an abrupt announcement, reports The-Sun.
The brand with 111 stores across North America has now closed one of its popular locations in Illinois as of Sunday, November 26.
“Shoe shoppers in Fairview Heights lost Sketchers back in June and will now struggle to find comfortable sports and casual shoes,” says The-Sun.
Store items just moments prior to the closure were on sale, allowing locals to make the best out of these deals.
Store associate Victoria Martin revealed the location’s final day to the Belleville News-Democrat.
She was unable to give an official reason behind the closure and highlighted that the store was often recommended by nearby foot doctors.
Martin added that many customers are upset with the move with recent comments on its website focusing on the closure.
“Sorry you’re closing. Been a customer for many years. Recommend others to purchase from you,” one wrote.
“I’ve purchased shoes at this store in Fairview Heights for years and always had excellent quality of service with a pleasant smile,” another added.
“I deeply regret the notice of your choice to close the only store in Metro East. I live and work in Illinois,”
After Sunday’s closure, New Balance customers will have to travel to Richmond Heights or Creve Coeur in Missouri to visit the store.
Meanwhile, other big-name retailers are set to shut up shop in the state in January next year.
TJX plans to close a staggering 6 TJ Maxx and Marshalls locations in Chicago, Illinois in early 2024.
