JR Cigar Plans to Cut 135 Positions

JR Cigar has announced that it will be cutting 135 positions in the state as part of a refocusing effort. 54 of those cuts are in Burlington, the remaining 81 are at the store in Selma. The company says the reductions are part of a change in strategy as JR Cigar shifts its focus solely to tobacco products and e-cigarette offerings - not clothing, books, housewares and other retail items. While the cuts do represent the bulk of the workforce in those locations, neither store is closing, he says. Each location will have about 20 employees, with the call center and distribution warehouse remaining at the company-owned building in Burlington. In Selma, where the firm leases space for the store, the company has decided to downsize its facility, moving from about 80,000 square feet to 13,000 square feet.
