After weeks of rumors, Ralph Lauren has confirmed it will be cutting over 100 jobs in the Triad.

The cuts are part of a cost-saving effort that includes laying off 8 percent of staff and closing 50 stores nationwide.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports Ralph Lauren Corp. will cut 107 jobs at three North Carolina facilities.

A Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act notice was posted on the N.C. Commerce Department's website Monday. It says the layoffs will take place at offices in Kernersville, Greensboro and High Point.

The notice says cuts will affect a variety of roles, including analysts, fulfillment center specialists, supervisory IT roles and technicians.

Ralph Lauren said in a statement that the layoffs are part of restructuring aimed at getting the company back on a path to “profitable growth.” The company says that “North Carolina remains a critically important hub for our business.”
