Checks Unlimited will lay off up to 100 employees in Colorado Springs after consolidating check-printing operations in Salt Lake City and Kansas City, Mo.
The Springs-based company says the consolidation was the result of consumers switching to electronic payment methods from personal checks.
Terry Peterson, a spokesman for Shoreview, Minn.-based Deluxe Corp., parent company for Checks Unlimited, says the Colorado Springs facility "no longer has enough volume to support a stand-alone operation."
Peterson says Checks Unlimited also has put its 285,000-square-foot building in the Briargate area on the market because "we have a lot of vacant space we are not using." Peterson says the company will move its remaining 700-employee call center elsewhere in Colorado Springs if necessary.
