The Warehouse Group is planning to cut up to 1000 jobs across six stores and its head office. The move is part of a restructure which has been accelerated by Covid-19.
Two of the stores slated for closure are in regional Waikato - Noel Leeming in Tokoroa and Warehouse Stationery in Te Awamutu.
Don Good is the executive director of the Waikato Chamber of Commerce.
He speaks to Kim Hill.
