Target lays off 235 in Twin Cities tech operations, 40 in India
Six months after the ax fell on hundreds of workers at Target Corp. headquarters, the company’s technology operations finally felt the effect of its downsizing, with 235 people in the Twin Cities told they were out of a job Tuesday.
The retailer’s information technology units were spared in earlier rounds of layoffs as the senior executives in charge of them were in flux.
In addition to the new job cuts, Target said Tuesday it will close about 35 open positions at its corporate offices in Minneapolis and Brooklyn Park. Target laid off 40 people at its IT center in India, where it employs about 2,600 people.
