YAKIMA, Wash. — Discounted prices for Twinkies and other popular products from Hostess can now be found at all Big Lots stores, including Yakima’s.

In a news release Monday, the Columbus-based closeout retailer announced its status as the official outlet for Hostess products, which made a comeback late last year after a new company purchased the manufacturing rights.

The Big Lots store in Yakima is at 120 N. Fair Ave.

Hostess Bakery Outlet stores all closed late in 2012 after Hostess Brands Inc. filed bankruptcy and decided to shutter its business due to rising labor costs, management struggles and other issues.

The former outlet store at 1903 S. Third Ave. is now a Domino’s Pizza.
