I heard there were layoffs out at the new Wal-Mart. Is this true?
The new store at Sixth Street and Wakarusa Drive in Lawrence did not have any layoffs, said Michelle Bradford, a spokeswoman for Wal-Mart. “We are currently accepting applications at that store,” she said last week. “We staff each of our stores on a case-by-case basis. From time to time, we adjust staffing levels. The reasons we do that could be anything from a special event at the store to a busier or slower shopping season, job-performance factors, or training and scheduling needs of the individual associates.”
