US: Carter's shedding 100 jobs at OshKosh B'Gosh HQ?
Children's wear company Carter's is shedding or relocating 100 employees at the headquarters of its OshKosh B'Gosh brand, say local reports.
The changes will be made by the end of this year to improve its efficiency and profitability, according to the Oshkosh Northwestern newspaper.
Carter's acquired OshKosh B'Gosh, which markets children's clothing and accessories, in May 2005.
The company was not available to comment on the news when contacted yesterday (22 April).
The first Off-Price Show to be held in mainland Europe is a sell-out, according to its organisers, with all stand space taken at the clothing and accessories event which happens later this month....
Children's wear specialist Carter's posted a second quarter profit of US$11.3m, boosted by improved sales for its eponymous Carter's brand....
