Hostess Store Remains Open, Christmas Tough For Employees

Redding, Calif. -

The Hostess Thrift Store on Hartnell Ave. in Redding is still open.  But they keep getting shipments of bread and goodies from Sacramento, keeping their doors open.

But when it eventually ends, the employees will have to find employment elsewhere.

The holidays can be a tough time for laid-off employees.  But at Hostess, they’re not quite as worried.

Employees there saw the closure coming a while off, and have planned ahead.  Most got all their Christmas shopping done earlier this month.

The store will remain open as long as they have bread to sell, most of it for only one dollar.

They are closed for Thanksgiving, but will be open again Friday morning.
