Struggling Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) is reportedly laying off hundreds of workers at a call center in Utah.

A letter that was sent to employees and obtained by KSL TV, an NBC affiliate out of Salt Lake City, said the company was taking steps to “restructure in order to build greater efficiencies within the organization.”

Employees that received the letter were told that their position was eliminated, and their employment would end on Aug. 15. Laid-off workers would receive pay and benefits until that date. Severance and benefits would also be provided based on position and length of service.

A total of 285 employees would permanently be let go from the Layton, Utah Contact Servicer Center, the letter said.

The call center has been reportedly empty as hundreds of employees work from home during the coronavirus pandemic.

Bed Bath & Beyond had temporarily closed its stores in March because of the COVID-19 crisis. The company furloughed the majority of its employees a month later. The retailer has since begun reopening stores and has expanded its curbside pickup service.

The company has been undergoing a transformation of its business under the leadership of CEO and president, Mark Tritton, a former Target executive.

Bed Bath & Beyond stock was trading at $10.02 per share at 1:33 p.m. EDT,  up $0.30 from 3.33%.
