Marshall Field s department store at Westfield Franklin Park yesterday told all full-time employees they will be laid off permanently.
The retailer is preparing to change into a Macy s store this fall. Part-time employees
reportedly were not affected.
A statement issued by the firm said it is modifying staffing levels at several stores. After Federated Department Stores Inc. bought the firm which owned the chain, it said it would eliminate 6,200 positions.
Toledo store officials would not disclose how many workers were affected or how soon layoffs will begin. Affected employees were to be offered severance and could seek open positions within the company.
