Ruben Diaz on Cookie Factory's Impending Closure

Earlier this afternoon, Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. released this statement:

It is unfortunate that Brynwood Partners would move so quickly to close its Kingsbridge plant, simply because a labor dispute did not go its way. Stella D’oro has been a Bronx institution for decades, providing thousands of jobs to Bronxites over the years. Its closure would signify a sad end of an era for our borough, and my office will do everything it can to prevent this hastily made decision and keep Stella D’oro, and the much needed jobs the factory provides, in Kingsbridge.
The factory is slated to close in October.
