PORTLAND — A York County business that took telephone calls for companies selling things labeled “as seen on TV” has closed its doors, putting 120 people out of work.

Before CenterPoint officials broke the news to their employees on Thursday, they called police to be on hand, but no problems were reported.

CenterPoint CEO Michael McNaboe tells WGME-TV the company was faced with a “very tough” choice and had to end operations immediately.

The company laid off 60 people in December.

The company says it didn’t have enough money to make payroll. Workers will be mailed their paychecks.
