Supervalu to cut 800 jobs nationwide


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Supervalu Inc. plans to cut 800 positions nationwide as the supermarket chain tries to lower its costs.

The company, based in Minneapolis, has approximately 135,000 employees in total. It said Tuesday that the majority of the reductions will be complete by the end of February.

The cuts include both currently filled and open jobs across most departments within its organization, although store-level employees are generally not affected.
