|Restructuring Costs [Abstract]|
During the first quarter of fiscal 2020, the Company implemented and completed a cost optimization initiative, which eliminated positions across the Company’s ShopHQ segment, the majority of whom were employed in customer service, order fulfillment and television production. As a result of the first quarter fiscal 2020 cost optimization initiative, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $55,000 and $264,000 for the three and nine-month periods ended October 31, 2020, which relate primarily to severance and other incremental costs associated with the consolidation and elimination of positions across the Company's ShopHQ segment. These initiatives were substantially completed as of October 31, 2020, with related cash payments expected to continue through the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020.
During second quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company implemented a cost initiative to streamline its organizational structure and realign its cost base with sales declines. During the second quarter of 2019, the Company implemented and completed a cost optimization initiative, which reduced and flattened the Company's organizational structure, closed the New York office, closed the Los Angeles office and related product development initiatives, and reduced corporate overhead costs. The second quarter 2019 initiative included the elimination of 11 senior executive roles and a 20% reduction to the Company's non-variable workforce. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company completed additional reductions in the Company's organizational structure to manage the Company's costs. As a result of the cost optimization initiatives during fiscal 2019, the Company recorded restructuring charges of $1,516,000 and $6,681,000 for the three and nine-month periods ended November 2, 2019, which relate primarily to severance and other incremental costs associated with the consolidation and elimination of positions across the Company.
