Low sales behind layoffs at business

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WCIA) -- A business says sales is one reason they had to lay off workers last month. Hobbico laid off 7 percent of its employees, both locally and in Reno, Nevada, in late August.

More than 650 people work for the company across the nation. Hobbico also says it temporarily lost two key suppliers last year and a key product line this year.

The business is also involved in a lawsuit with a Texas vendor called Traxxus. It was filed last month. It's in regards to patent infringement. A British company is also involved.
