From the Las Vegas Sun:

The suspense is over for employees of the Boardwalk on the Strip, who have learned that the hotel will close Jan. 9.

On Friday, parent company MGM Mirage mailed letters to the Boardwalk's 749 employees, informing them that they will lose their jobs Jan. 9, but will be allowed to apply for open jobs at other company properties.

MGM Mirage will begin tearing down the 654-room property, which will be leveled to make way for the planned CityCenter, a $5 billion hotel and condominium complex expected to open by the end of 2009.

The Coney Island-themed Boardwalk will not be imploded; it will be demolished piece by piece in a process expected to take up to five months.
