STORE CLOSING: Hostess Outlet Closing Down

For many of us, the announcement of Hostess shutting down means no more Ho-Ho’s or Twinkies.  But for others it means much more. 

Shelves at the Hostess Bakery Outlet Store on East University are almost bare.  A 50 percent off “Store closing” sign ensures that.  But employees here will be going from the check out line to the unemployment line…Just in time for the holidays.

"What are we supposed to do?" Checkout clerk Karen Dameron asks, "I have my husband.  I have my children...I've got grandkids that are counting on grandma for presents for Christmas. What am I supposed to tell them?  This is sad. This is really sad."

The Bakery Outlet Store will close for good on Tuesday.
