Layoffs are ahead for a local computer and electronics store.
TigerDirect is closing 31 of its 34 stores, including one right here in Naperville. The electronics retailer has been struggling as consumers are flocking more toward online sale sites. More than 1,200 employees will be let go, about 40 of which will come from the Naperville location. Layoffs are expected to take place on May 9.
Another 172 workers will be cut from a distribution center adjacent to the Naperville store that is also closing. Those layoffs will take place June 8.
