Wonderbread Store Closes Its Doors Forever

The Wonder Bread/Hostess Bakery Outlet

Following news that Hostess Brands, the maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, would be closing for good, the employees of the Wonder Bread/Hostess Bakery Outlet at 710 Alabama St. in Columbus shut their doors for the last time on Saturday.
All the bread and snack cakes were long gone. Only hot dog and hamburger buns were still for sale on Saturday afternoon along with a smattering of crackers and jams. Only one box of Twinkies remained, and one of the employees had it saved in the back for herself. The employees said the shop had been busier all day than they had ever seen it.
The three employees, Lead Clerk Vanessa Henry, Clerk Jennifer Garrard, and Retired Lead Clerk/Manager Sherry Bearden, said that they found out they would soon be out of jobs on Thursday night when the news started going out on the internet that the company was shutting down.
The closing is being blamed on a worker strike that started in early November after Hostess imposed pay cuts and concessions deemed unacceptable by the employee union.
Henry, Garrard, and Bearden were not members of the union and were not on strike, but lost their jobs anyway. Henry and Bearden opened the store on Jan. 6, 1986. “I guess it’s fitting that we close it together,” said Henry. More recent hire Garrard said she plans to go on unemployment until January, when job prospects may be better. “Anything I could get now would just be temporary,” she sighed.
It was announced on Tuesday afternoon that Hostess and the union would go into mediation talks, in an effort to save the company. However Hostess CEO Greg Rayburn has stated publically that it is too late for the company and that even if workers returned now, it would be impossible for them to recover from the damage. The company employed 18,500 at their distribution plants, all of whom are currently out of work.
It is not the end of the line yet for Hostess products though. The company has announced its intention to sell its brands and recipes as a way to generate cash for its creditors. So Twinkies, Wonder Bread and other Hostess products may find their way back to the market.
