Further Job Cuts at Jewelry Television

12 january 2009

Jewelry Television has started a new round of layoffs due to poor holiday sales and the weak economy, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported. 
The company did not say how many employees would be laid off, but noted that all departments at the home shopping network would be affected. Spokesperson Kelly Fletcher told KNS that downsizing may continue until sales improve, RAPAPORT reported.
"This is part of our attempt to bring expenses in line with revenues," Fletcher said. “We’re in a cost-cutting mode. We’re not filing for bankruptcy." 
In May, Jewelry Television announced it had eliminated 200 jobs in an effort to remain competitive during the economic slump in the United States. KNS reported that the company had streamlined its operations from 2,000 employees before the cuts to about 1,300 today.
