I wondered if something unhappy was brewing when I went shopping there last month (600 miles from home). They did not have their standard supply of wonderful muffin mixes. When I inquired, I was told I could find them at Wal-mart. However, I don't shop at Wal-mart, and if they can get back on firmer footing, I'll be back to the retail outlet, right near the freeway. This is quite indicative of a rotten economy for a company that old to be in this desperate situation. I love their products, and hope the company can rebound.

The article only tells half the story and ignores the fundamental issues surrounding the need for bankruptcy. This story really superficial and offers its readership no depth of understanding to be informed as to what to make of this bankruptcy. It's just a interesting news story that bewilders more than it does to inform.

"However, I don't shop at Wal-mart..."

How supremely ironic, that you will let your apparent prejudice against Walmart stop you from supporting the Mill by purchasing their products at Walmart temporarily.

This is proof once again that the notion that "everything in Walmart is made in China" is a lie, and also a demonstration of the irrationality of hating Walmart.

anit-liar, I supported the mill by buying from what products they did have. I have many reasons for not shopping at Wal-mart, and it is certainly my right to do so. Nor did I use the word "hate" or the phrase "everything in Wal-mart is made in China." Jumping to conclusions is a form of irrationality.

Is any of this connected to Hostess? Did they supply flour?

Lost in all the mix about missing payroll is the fact that certain orders were fulfilled but not paid. The Mill fought with those customers to secure the few millions of $ owed and thus was forced into missed payrolls. Bankruptcy is not a bad thing, it's wonderful that it's available to protect businesses (and others) that get into unfortunate situations. Lehi Mill will respond and survive, as it's done for more than 100 years.
