Former Hostess Store in Chatsworth to be Demolished for Goodwill Store

Its hard to believe that it has already been close to two years since the Hostess Shop on 9837 - 9853 De Soto in Chatsworth has closed. Back in November 2012, Hostess filed for bankruptcy due to a strike by the bakers which resulted in a massive liquidation of the entire company including the Hostess brand and products themselves. 

It makes you wonder if the strike was worth it as 18,500 workers lost their jobs, 33 bakeries were shut, 565 distribution centers closed, and 570 outlet stores boarded up like the one in Chatsworth. But dont worry about the impact to the former workers as Twinkies can be purchased today at the local Wal-Mart

Life moves on and the Hostess store that has been sitting vacant for 2 years will now be reincarnated into a Goodwill Store via demolition of the existing 9,200 sqft facility and the construction of a new 12,000 sqft facility. This must mean that the economy is doing really well for Goodwill to expand as everyday people donate their crap to buy more crap (which I am guilty of too but I get a decent tax break). You can read more details about the hearing notice issued by city below.
