With Hostess closing, run on Twinkies in Cheyenne

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) _ Anybody in Wyoming who's craving a Twinkie _ good luck.

People are flocking to a usually sleepy Hostess outlet store in Cheyenne to grab all the Twinkies and Zingers they can before Hostess goes out of business.

More than 20 people were queued up inside the store Friday with shopping carts full of goodies.

The store was out of Twinkies. The last five packages went to a local radio personality, Wayne Spencer, who got there just in time.

The phone was ringing off the hook with people asking store manager Brenda Baca to set aside products. Baca says she can't honor those requests.

Baca says she'll be looking for a new job after working at the store for nine years. The store will remain open no later than Monday.
