Dallas-based 7-Eleven has joined the ranks of so many other corporations faced with the unfortunate need to reduce its workforce.
According to 7-Eleven, 10 percent of it's non-store and non-operational workforce will be laid off. That 10 percent adds up to about 200 people in the U.S. and Canada.
It is not clear how many of those reductions are coming from the Dallas area.
Additionally, the company is suspending raises, incentives and 401(k) matching in an attempt to remain as profitable as possible.
Despite the reduction, the company said they intend to continue add more stores while improving the product assortment desired by their customers.
