According to “Spiegel”, which refers to internal plans, around 4,000 full-time jobs are at risk. The company employs approximately 55,000 people worldwide.
The implementation of the proposed measures would initially cost around 180 million euros, but should also reduce annual costs by just over 100 million euros, as announced by Ceconomy. An implementation decision is due on August 12.
In addition, some loss-making branches across Europe could be closed due to a lack of customers, he said. Initially, according to “Spiegel”, around twenty stores are concerned.
