Pink slips for more than half the staff at the University Mall in South Burlington.
The mall's parent company, Finard Management, is doing away with its customer service desk and the five employees that staff it. Finard Management has also done away with the full-time marketing director position. A spokesperson tells us that job will be handled by the remaining three full-time employees.
The spokesperson said she could not tell us why jobs were cut, but added the mall no longer uses gift cards, which was one of the primary duties of the customer service desk.
