SALISBURY, NC (AP) — The parent company of Salisbury-based Food Lion grocery stores plans to lay off 350 corporate workers.

Delhaize America also is eliminating 150 vacant positions. The company says some of the layoffs will occur in Salisbury, but it did not say how many.

Spokeswoman Christy Phillips-Brown says all of the reductions are being made above the store manager level.

Most of the reductions are expected to be finished in about a week.

Phillips-Brown says the restructuring will make the company for effective and efficient.

About 2,500 people work for Delhaize in Salisbury, the home for Food Lion, Bottom Dollar Reid’s and Harvey’s.

The company closed 113 stores last year, including all the Food Lion stores in Florida.
