ANGI Homeservices Inc., the parent of Indianapolis-based Angie’s List, announced plans Tuesday to close HomeAdvisor’s customer service center in Colorado Springs by year’s end and lay off all 229 employees.
The company that connects homeowners with home improvement contractors will consolidate the Colorado Springs operation with its Golden and Denver offices, the Gazette reported.
The company said it plans to retain sales centers in Chicago, New York, Indianapolis, and Olathe, Kansas.
The company opened the Colorado Springs center in April 2015.
HomeAdvisor said terminated employees include sales consultants, project advisers, customer care representatives, marketing consultants and advisers, managers, and other support personnel.
A company spokeswoman said Colorado Springs employees will be able to seek jobs in the company’s Denver-area offices.
Terminated employees are expected to receive severance packages, job search assistance and outplacement and career counseling.
Media giant IAC acquired Angie’s List in 2017 and combined it with Denver-based HomeAdvisor to form ANGI Homeservices. The company is based in Colorado but has significant operations in Indianapolis.
Shares in ANGI rose 30 cents Tuesday, to $7.38 per share.
