Staples has reportedly laid off as many as 200 employees.

According to the Framingham Source, the layoffs occurred on Sept. 9 and 10. It was unknown if the layoffs occurred at the company’s headquarters, nationwide or worldwide.

Framingham Mayor Yvonne Spicer told the news outlet that she was “aware of the layoffs” and had “received Staples’ statement.” Spicer was referring to Staples Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) filing with the state of Massachusetts or its filing with the federal government.

This is not the first layoffs for the office supply retailer as the company laid off employees in January 2018 and again in May 2018. At the time, the layoffs comprised about 200 workers, the Framington Source reported.

Staples was purchased by Sycamore Partners in 2017 for $6.9 billion.
