MVP.com Closes Two Offices, Lays Off 79 Employees

Share this content:
Online sports and outdoor retailer MVP.com, whose backers include former Denver Broncos player John Elway, Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky has closed offices in Boulder, CO, and Austin, TX --- operations that were acquired earlier this year. In all, the company will lay off 79 employees, including 20 from its Chicago headquarters.


Operations will now be consolidated in the Chicago office.


"This move will help lower the company's cost structure to operate more effectively and efficiently in a challenging business environment," a statement from MVP.com said.


The MVP.com changes will not affect customers, the company added. The site at www.mvp.com will continue to sell 40,000 items from over 400 brands of sporting goods, outdoor gear and apparel.


Only last week MVP.com announced it had signed a deal to feature the specialty gift gallery of Outpost.com, a Kent, CT, retailer of consumer technology products.
