The Longaberger basket company now says it will lay off nearly 800 workers next month.
More than a month ago, the basketmaker warned that as many as 970 workers could lose their jobs unless sales picked up.
The company has about 54-hundred workers.
The 784 workers who will lose their jobs on September ninth work in the company's manufacturing operations.
During the course of the summer about 100 employees accepted voluntary layoffs.
A company spokeswoman says slow sales, rising health care and energy costs all contributed to the layoffs.
