Shipt Reduces Head Count


The Shipt subsidiary of Target Corporation has announced a three percent reduction in their workforce and in the imposition of a hiring freeze.  The company issued a statement that included “We carefully reviewed the needs of our business and our team.  Our business and industry have changed dramatically in the past few years and to keep Shipt competitive and healthy, we ultimately made the decision to eliminate select positions across the organization and closed many of our open positions.”


Shipt, located in Birmingham, AL. is renegotiating cash incentives and tax breaks that were awarded by the Alabama Department of Commerce, based on forward projections of job creation that will not be achieved. This downsizing by Shipt is emblematic of a decline in on-line commerce with a post-COVID return to brick-and-mortar.
