Columbus State Community College is looking to help laid-off retail workers displaced by the closures that have swept through the industry lately.
The school formed what it calls a “retail rapid response team” to address retraining laid-off retail employees.
The Andersons Inc., Limited Stores and Macy’s Inc. (NYSE:M) are among the Ohio-based retailers that have announced cutbacks and closures. The four-store Anderson’s (NASDAQ: ANDE) is closing soon and The Limited closed its 250 stores in January.
