Cost cutting in Sandpoint and across the country: Coldwater Creek’s job cuts

Recently we took a look at the slow and painful progress Coldwater Creek has made in recovering from a difficult retail-apparel market.

One thing we couldn't get, in time for the story, was the change in headcount for the Sandpoint publicly traded company (CWTR is the Nasdaq symbol).

Cost cutting certainly has occurred. In 2010 the firm had 9,680 total workers, with 738 in Idaho.

As of June 2012 the numbers are 6,912 total employees and 589 in Idaho.
