Glory Bee Baking company owners said customers aren't buying like they use too. More money is being put into the bakery than coming out.
Susan Morgan gives her Glory Bee Baking employees instructions for one last time, "Make sure we have a good representation of everything."
The company is preparing to close its doors forever. "You know the hardest part was telling our staff members," said Susan. "We have such good people."
This mother of four is one of twenty employees searching for another job. "I've been trying to build a little house to live in on my land in Hallsville," said Jaime Farr. "This will be a little bit of a set back for that."
Owner Bill Morgan said rising costs and slow business has put them in a financial hole, "We're somewhat of a reflection of what's going on economically."
The Gladewater store served for twenty plus years, while the Longview store opened three years ago.
"We just felt like after giving it three years that perhaps we weren't what Longview was looking for at that particular time," added Bill.
As the Morgan's see their dreams slowly slip away, they try to concentrate on the stores final sale. "They can come buy us out," ended Susan.
The company has a lot of outstanding bills so these next few days they will be having a close out sale. The owners said what you contribute will help pay those bills and meet payroll.
