#4 I forgot about Canada. Distribution is different there. Vendors in remote areas have had distribution rights in difficult service areas. I believe Frito Lay was distributing them there also. Flowers owns Tastkake. Most of that distribution is nonunion. They will takeover companies that open up new market areas. Like Snyders of Hanover taking over Lance(Toms). Nonunion again. Smart move. New equipment, new warehouse space, distribution points. Delivery people must purchase their own routes. No employee issues.

#8 One poster on Tippers link said forget them. Turn the factories in clothing manufactures. Because everyone will lose weight. Watch the first of the year what happens. Many in the clothing industry are just holding on till the first of the year. Holiday sales are their last hope. False hope because so much has been lost already.

#9 Hmmm, Think about March is when everything is going to crash into the ground Dave. Holiday sales past, summer jobs gearing up(which won't be there), graduates looking for jobs.
