Retail chain Lindex, which has stores in the Nordic market and in Germany, has announced a number of redundancies and store closures in an attempt to bring the business back to profitability. Short-term cost saving measures include a reduction of around 50 positions, mainly at the head office in Alingsas, and the shutting down of between five and 10 stores in its network. A continued reduction in expenses, partly through lower storage and transportation costs, fewer development projects, more efficient marketing and a reduction in the number of consultants is also planned.
