Argo Marketing Group Inc. says it's spending $2.4 million to convert a former department store into a state-of-the-art call center and its corporate headquarters.

LEWISTON, Maine (AP) _ A customer service and marketing company in Lewiston plans to expand and add up to 150 jobs to Maine's second largest city.

Argo Marketing Group Inc. said Thursday it's spending $2.4 million to renovate the former McCrory's department store on Lisbon Street to convert it into a state-of-the-art call center and its corporate headquarters.

Argo founder and CEO Jason Levesque says 80 jobs will move from space the company now leases down the street, with plans to hire another 150 full-time employees by next April.

He says when the construction is done, Argo employees will work on the second floor, with a cafe and retail storefronts taking up the ground floor.
