Merck is filling in some of the blanks in its massive restructuring plan.

The drug-maker says it will lay off 500 employees at its plant in Lower Gwynedd in Montgomery County.

The cuts will take place over the holiday season between this December 23rd and January 4th.

Merck announced last month that it would cut 8500 jobs globally.
