Sample letter to announce closing of an office or store to employees

We regret to inform to you that as we had feared for sometime, that the merger between our parent company and Abc International has unfortunately had a negative effect on our sister companies including ours. In this regard, we are sorry to announce that our office shall be closed permanently by the end of this financial year.

Some of the employees here will be transferred to the head office. If you are in this list, you will be notified. We regret that we will be unable to take all of you with us. A generous compensation package will be given to those whose employment with us will end, and we would be very pleased to provide anyone who asks with a very positive reference.

We deeply appreciate our association over the years, and regret the events which have made this decision necessary. We thank you and wish you the best of success in your new positions, wherever they may be.
