One More Week For Middle Swanson’s, Talks Continue
ABERDEEN, Wash. – One more week for Swanson’s employees and shoppers of the Simpson Avenue location in Aberdeen. Sources tell us employees will know more on Thursday of next week, but for now – the lights will come on Sunday morning at the “middle” Swanson’s store. Store employees received word more than a month ago that the store’s lease was up on New Years Day, and talks to sign a new lease had failed. With a letter of hope in their following paycheck, union staff continue the shuffle to accommodate a possible closure. The last word from management was that talks were continuing and Swanson continued to negotiate a possible lease agreement that could keep the store open.
