Company spokeswoman Michele Casper says the first cuts -- 50 full-time jobs from the company's corporate offices and 25 from the call center -- were effective Wednesday.

The other 124 jobs -- a mix of full- and part-time positions in the call center -- will be eliminated after the busy holiday sales period.

Casper tells the Wisconsin State Journal nearly 80 percent of company sales in the U.S. are now made online.

Land's End now employs about 3,000 in Dodgeville.
