Am I Next? Stonestown mall store closure — 230 layoffs.

Seattle, Washington-based Nordstrom, the luxury department store retailer with legendary customer service has announced the closure of its 100,000 square-foot store in the San Francisco Stonestown Galleria. The last day of business is scheduled for September 13, 2019. According to a WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) notice filed with the State of California, the closure is permanent and will affect 230 employees.

According to a company spokesperson, "We keep a close eye on the long-term performance of our stores, real estate agreements and the future needs of our business. We look at our business market-to-market to understand where we have opportunities to grow while also being as efficient as possible in serving our customers. Looking at our needs in the San Francisco market, we decided it made the most sense to close this store."

Change is coming. There will always be a tomorrow, no matter how much you may try to ignore it. There are no guarantees in life, or promises for a bright future. Just because something bad hasn't happened yet, doesn't mean it won't. It can happen to anyone, anytime, anywhere. No one is guaranteed to wake up tomorrow and still have a job by evening. Are you now wondering, Am I Next?
