Like many other brands, Orvis has been forced into layoffs and furloughs in recent weeks across its operation due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

The exact number of jobs involved wasn’t revealed, but Public Relations Manager Tucker Kimball said the cuts were across the outdoor retailer’s entire operation, including positions at the corporate headquarters in Sunderland and both retail locations in Manchester.

Kimball said 20 percent of the employees at the headquarters have had their jobs eliminated and the majority of workers in the retail stores and the rod shop in Manchester have been furloughed.
