Shutterfly to Close Shakopee Manufacturing Plant, to Layoff 246 Workers

Shutterfly to Close Shakopee Manufacturing Plant, to Layoff 246 Workers

Shutterfly will lay off 246 workers after closing one of its manufacturing plants in Shakopee, Minnesota, in the United States. The layoffs will take place in stages, beginning in October of this year and ending in June of 2024.

The plant’s shutdown is a step towards bettering the business and related activities in general. The company plans to redistribute production tasks from the Shakopee plant to its larger operational centres.

Shutterfly acknowledges being aware of the implications of this decision, including the impact on the families of the affected employees and the Shakopee community at large and is committed to providing assistance to the affected employees. The company will assist them in finding new jobs and alternative career paths. It will also make internal job transfers easier and offer relocation assistance to some employees.

The Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development has announced that the California-based company will permanently close its Shakopee plant in June 2024. The plan has been in place for nearly ten years.

Shutterfly announced earlier this year that it would lay off 93 employees at its Shakopee facility while also relocating its books and gifting units to other locations. This strategic shift was motivated by the company’s reaction to the current ‘challenging and uncertain economic conditions.’
