I grew up eating Stella D'oro cookies, and we've all seen their packages at grocery stores. I had only found out their plant was located in the Bronx when I heard the news that they would be closing. Pretty crappy way of finding out something you used to love was local.
The recent closing is the result of on-going disputes between the union workers and Brynwood, the company who bought the bakery in 2006. They recently sold Stella D'oro to Lance, Inc, who plans to move production to Ohio.
