MarineMaxLindenhurst

Newsday reported that MarineMax will lay off 43 employees at its Lindenhurst, New York, location. The national retailer announced on August 27 that it would consolidate its Copiague and Lindenhurst operations into its Huntington location. The company planned to expand its Huntington offices, according to the statement.

MarineMax’s Lindenhurst dealership is expected to close on Sept. 30, with “employee separations” planned for Nov. 25, the company said in its state WARN notice.

WARN, New York state’s Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, requires that companies with at least 50 full-time employees file a notice of a mass layoff or a closing 90 days in advance. The state recently posted the notice for MarineMax on its website.
