Dick’s Sporting Goods Furloughing Most Of Its Employees
Another day and another story about more people losing jobs here in America.
According to KWWL, via CNN, Dick's Sporting Goods is furloughing the majority of its 40,000 employees. With the lack of sporting events going on right now, the retailer is finding it hard to survive.
The report states that Dick's has 800 stores across the country and it indicated that they won't be reopening anytime soon.
I called the Cedar Rapids store located 4601 1st Avenue SE. They told me the store is closed to the public but they are offering curbside pick-up. That means you can pick out your products online, pay with a card and pick-up at the curb.
The furloughs will start on Easter Sunday, April 12, according to KWWL. The good news is the workers will continue to receive their benefits for now.
