(Lititz) -- Bank holding company BB&T is closing a call center in Lancaster County and laying off 82 employees in the process.

The Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based company is selling the call center building in Lititz and says the workers will be let go in December.

The building is the former headquarters of Susquehanna Bank, which BB&T bought three years ago.

BB&T spokesman says the company already has a buyer for the building under contract, but wouldn't divulge other details.

The company says it will help the laid off employees find jobs inside and outside BB&T and offer them severance packages.

BB&T had previously laid off 89 workers at the same call center in September 2015.
