    OfficeMax Inc. plans to close
    its Casper call center and terminate the facility’s 250
    employees.Spokeswoman Jennifer Rook says the company notified employees

    supplies retailer has operated the Casper facility since 1998.Rook says
    more than 60 percent of the 250 employees hold full-time positions.
    Severance packages and career service counseling will be available to
    eligible employees.The Casper facility is one of four OfficeMax call
    centers in the United States that handle customer inquiries. The others
    – in Bristol, Va., Peru, Ill., and Ottawa, Ill. — will remain
    open.Rook says the decision was driven by operating infrastructure costs
