Target laid off 150 corporate workers at its Minneapolis-area headquarters on Wednesday, about 1 percent of its local workforce, as executives tackled inefficiencies at a time of growing uncertainty about shoppers’ behavior. Many retailers, including Target, have lowered their financial expectations for the rest of the year, citing a tougher-than-expected spending environment.
