The Hostess Thriftshop attached to the Hostess bakery in Ogden remained open Thursday. A sign on the window read “Now Hiring.” But a sign inside, attached to some empty shelves, apologized for the products that were not there.
“Due to a labor dispute at our producing bakeries our supply of bread and cakes may be temporarily interrupted,” the sign read. “We are doing our best to keep our stores stocked. We appreciate your continued support by shopping our stores. Again, we are grateful for your business.”
Hostess Brands Inc. said it would ask a U.S. bankruptcy judge for permission to liquidate if enough striking workers did not return to work by the end of the day Thursday.
