TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Hostess Bakery Outlet in Tucson will close Monday, following the announcement from Hostess that the company is bankrupt and will close.

Saturday at Tucson's outlet near Fort Lowell and Stone, shelves were nearing empty as people stocked up on some of Hostess's famous treats.

According to one long-time employee, employees feel as though they're losing their family.

Employees tell Tucson News Now that whatever doesn't sell from the Midtown shop will be given to the local Food Bank.
