OHIO (LA Times) – Ohio-based retailer Big Lots will soon sell Twinkies, Ding Dongs and other Hostess brand snacks at steep discounts.

The closeout chain announced Monday it will become the official discount retailer for Hostess snacks, filling a gap left by the closure of the snack maker’s Hostess Thrift Outlet stores, which were not reopened by the brand’s new owner.

“The thrift outlets were extremely popular,” David Campisi, Big Lots’ chief executive, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to team up with this iconic brand and give customers a new destination to find outstanding savings on the products they know and love.”
