LINCOLN (AP) — A New Jersey-based company says it plans to open a call center in Lincoln that will employ about 200 people.

iPacesetters, of Montvale, New Jersey, announced Monday it would open a call center at a site where another call center operator closed earlier in the year. That move by catalog and online retailer Dr. Leonard's resulted in the loss of 170 jobs.

iPacesetters, which says it provides telemarketing services to a number of companies, plans to open Nov. 6 and will hire employees in stages. The jobs will be split between full- and part-time positions.

Lincoln site director Penny Spaeth says the availability of the space used by another call center was a "bonus," but the company chose Lincoln because of the potential employees.
