GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) — More than 120 employees of the Choice Hotels call center in Mesa County have been told that the company plans to close and move the center to Phoenix.

Choice Hotels said about two dozen positions would be shifting to a new location, and some of the employees would be offered the option to transfer.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel, about 40 people who work from home will be offered jobs with a new company.

The company says the call center handled up to 4.5 million reservation calls a year, but that number has been steadily declining.
