REDDING, Calif. -

The Hostess Outlet Store on Hartnell Ave in Redding has remained vacant ever since Hostess went out of business in November.

But it’s empty no more.  Franz Bakery of Portland, Oreg. has taken over the space.

The move is so new, that the new owners have not even gotten the chance to change the signs. 

Franz plans to use the location as a distribution hub because of the preexisting loading dock and huge warehouse in the back of the store. 

The store will also be used as an outlet store and will offer bread and other foods at discount prices.  Today they had both $1 racks and free bread offers.

The store officially opened February 25 but it is holding a grand opening February 28 where ice cream sandwiches will be given out.
