LONDON Jan 21 J Sainsbury (SBRY.L), Britain's
third-biggest grocer, is restructuring its central support
teams, it said on Wednesday, in a move one industry source said
was likely to lead to around 200 job losses.
"Sainsbury's has today announced plans to restructure
central support teams to align them for the future growth,
ensuring there is no duplication of activity and to simplify the
central operation," the firm said in a statement.
It did not say how many jobs were likely to be lost.
Sainsbury said earlier this month it expected to create
around 3,000 to 4,000 jobs this year, mainly through the
expansion of its convenience store network.
