NEW YORK — Jacobson Stores Inc., still unsure of its future, gave more than half its employees their notice Friday as it moved closer to a liquidation.
A spokesman for the retailer said that the 18 specialty stores in five states continue to operate. He said that 240 employees at the headquarters in Jackson, Mich., were eliminated on Friday. Another 20 individuals in Orlando, Fla., were also let go. Most of those jobs were from merchandising, marketing and technology. The company still has 240 employees on its payroll, many in accounts receivable and payable.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
