Intel Corporation says it will keep a Colorado Springs chip plant open two months longer than planned.

The company had planned to shut the plant down August 4, but got a last-minute order.

The Gazette said the company is offering bonuses to those who stay until August 4, and is looking for volunteers to work after that.

The company announced in January that it would and sell the 1.4 million square acre plant. About 800 workers are affected, though some will get jobs at other Intel plants.
