Lowe's Home Improvement stores announced that they would be closing 20 stores across the United States in 2019. The stores that are closing have been selected on their 'under performing status.'

According to a press release, the stores will be closed by February 1, 2019. Will the employees at those stores be losing their jobs? It is the goal of Lowe's to find current employees, jobs at other locations.

“While decisions that impact our associates are never easy, the store closures are a necessary step in our strategic reassessment as we focus on building a stronger business,” said Marvin R. Ellison, Lowe’s president and CEO.
