We can all agree that American Girl had a rough third quarter of 2017. Toys R Us filed for bankruptcy, causing American Girl's sales to plummet 30%. Thanks to that, American Girl is cutting staff.
"American Girl has been facing some major headwinds for the past several quarters. The measures today were part of American Girl's ongoing efforts to truly control costs, align work force with demand, and improve efficiencies where and when we can.", said Julie Parks, a spokeswoman for American Girl.
American Girl is cutting 57 employees- 21 worked in the headquarters and distribution facility in Wisconsin and 36 worked in stores across the country.
If anyone reading this got cut from the Charlotte store, thank you for being so nice to me and I will miss seeing you every weekend.
