NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Home improvement giant Lowe’s says it is laying off thousands of workers.

They include people who assemble items like grills and patio furniture and perform maintenance and facility-service jobs, such as janitors.

Lowe’s says it’s outsourcing those jobs to third-party companies to let store associates spend more time serving customers on the sales floor.

The company would not say exactly how many workers will be losing their jobs.
