Carphone Warehouse has closed down the back office operation for its OneStopPhoneShop online retail business in Crewe.
The retailer has now completely merged OneStop’s operations with its sister site, e2save, as it closed down its customer services for cashback, operations for cashback, finance and human resources departments.
Carphone has said the OneStop brand will continue trading as it looks to grow its market share within online retail.
Staff affected by the closure have been told they can relocate to the e2save offices in Loughborough 65 miles away or in Carphone's retail business. A Carphone spokeswoman said the company expects the majority of staff to stay within the business.
The downsizing has come as little surprise after some operations were closed in July, including the sales department.
Carphone Warehouse bought the online retail business in March 2005 for £15m, at a time when it was the second biggest online retailer behind Dial-A-Phone.
