Miles;

My wife worked for them until about five years ago when she retired. "Cheap store brands" were also made at the Hostess/Interstate bakeries and labeled with the store brands name. Flowers bakery out of Ga may pick up the slack in our area. Last two re-organizations were a results of misapproations and poor management. Same with the union. GW
