The company, in an announcement Monday, said it will wind down operations at affected locations before the end of its fiscal year at the beginning of February. That should allow shoppers one more holiday at the stores and will give employees time to find new jobs if necessary.
Lowe’s said it is “making every effort” to transition impacted associates to other Lowe’s stores in the area.
“While decisions that impact our associates are never easy, the store closures are a necessary step in our strategic reassessment as we focus on building a stronger business,” said Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe’s president and CEO, in a statement.
Lowe’s has been undergoing a series of cutbacks of late, shuttering the Orchard Supply Hardware stores and cutting back on slow-selling products. The company’s sales continue to trail behind Home Depot.
