According to multiple sources, StockX has laid off 12% off its staff. Around 100-150 staff members in Detroit and Arizona are apparently affected by these layoffs. The news of cutting costs come right after StockX introduced a new 3% processing fee for US customers. The increasing prices as well as the decreasing demand for sneakers due to COVID-19 might be the causes for the layoffs.
