The luxury goods retailer Nordstrom is laying off 231 employees at its warehouse in Cedar Rapids.
KCRG TV reports Nordstrom has filed a layoff notice with the State of Iowa. The layoffs will take effect October 18.
Seattle-based Nordstrom opened a fulfillment center in Cedar Rapids in 1997. The company expanded the size of the facility about a decade ago, as online sales soared. Nordstrom has recently trimmed its sales outlook, predicting revenue will rise in the third and fourth quarters, but by about $200 million less than previously predicted.
