Supervalu says it's eliminating 100 jobs in Boise

BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - Supervalu said Wednesday it's planning to cut about 100 jobs in Boise.

Mike Siemienas, Supervalu spokesman, told KBOI 2News that the 100 positions affect nearly all departments in Boise - from entry level to vice president.

Earlier in the week, the company said it was eliminating about 1,100 positions nationwide, or about 3 percent of its workforce, less than a week after the supermarket operator completed the sale of five of its grocery chains.

The company said Tuesday that sale of the five grocery chains means that the remaining business will need "significantly fewer" corporate and store support roles and functions.
