Boise e-commerce retailer BodyBuilding.com continues to shrink its Boise workforce, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation.

The company, started in Boise in 1999, sells nutrition supplements and other products. It is currently part of Expedia Group.

Neither the company, its parent company nor a PR firm responded to BoiseDev’s request for comment on the layoffs this morning. This story will be updated if representatives return our requests for comment.

A source said employees were informed of the action this morning. It’s unclear how many positions are impacted.

More than a year ago, Seattle based Washington Federal purchased the building. The company, now known as WaFd Bank, now shares the building with BBcom. It launched a remodel project in the building late last year, according to permit records.

BodyBuilding initiated a number of layoffs in late 2016, and continues to shrink its Boise workforce as the ecommerce industry changes.
