The cuts, which could start as soon as this week, will focus on corporate and tech jobs, as well as in the company’s retail division, The New York Times reported Monday.

Amazon Fresh will stay open on Thanksgiving

Even as other grocers announce plans to shutter on the holiday, the high-tech grocer from the retail giant said it would keep its doors open for last-minute Thanksgiving purchases.

The new Aplenty products are largely seasonal additions to the Amazon store brand that launched last year.

The meal kit delivery company continues to expand its third-party sales strategy.

On Thursday, the retailer said it plans to hire 150,000 full-time, seasonal and part-time workers. New research indicates that might be a good idea as the retailer heads toward some busy months.

The retailer is freezing corporate hiring for both its brick-and-mortar and online shops, according to The New York Times.

Amid a “tough economic climate,” the retail giant on Monday debuted Amazon Access, a platform that provides more information about SNAP EBT payments and Amazon’s discounted membership program for those who receive government assistance.

It’s the 44th location for the fast-growing grocery chain, which also announced this week that it will only sell cage-free eggs.

It’s the 43rd store for the high-tech brick-and-mortar grocery arm of the retail giant.

The new location is the first in the area to offer Amazon's Just Walk Out Shopping.
