Willow Valley Inn & Suites in Lancaster County will lay off 175 people in November when the hotel closes to be demolished as part of the ongoing redevelopment there, according to a letter filed with the state Department of Labor and Industry.
“Plans for the West Lampeter site are in the formative stages, with some exciting concepts for the area. The company is looking to improve the overall health of the community by redeveloping the site for 2013 and the next decade,” Willow Valley President and Chief Operating Officer Diane Poillon wrote in the letter to the state.
The hotel employs 81 full-time, 58 part-time and 36 seasonal staff, according to the letter. The layoffs will begin Nov. 12.
Last week, the company announced its redevelopment plans for the property at 2416 Willow Street Pike.
