EASTGATE, OH (FOX19) -

Employees were laid off from the new Jungle Jim's Eastgate store, says a spokesperson.

The store would not specify the exact number, but says fewer than 30 workers were let go.

According to store officials, too many were hired during a job fair for the new Eastgate location, resulting in the layoffs.

Workers did not lose their jobs due to performance and could be potentially hired back when there is a turnover.

The store originally hired almost 400 workers when it opened in September.
