News : Scarborough Research to Close Sarasota Call Center
May 6, 2014 -- Citing "business reasons," Scarborough Research has notified the State of Florida it will close its call center operations in Sarasota and lay off 220 employees by the end of September.
Scarborough Research was a joint venture between the Nielsen Co. and Arbitron Inc., until Nielsen acquired Arbitron in September 2013. Scarborough Research is now a part of the Nielsen Local Insight Suite, according to Tampa Bay Business Journal research.
A request for comment from New York-based Scarborough is pending return. The company still lists its Sarasota location as a call center searching for part-time telephone interviewers.
