Sunnyside's Darigold Dairy Fair Store closes

SUNNYSIDE -- Darigold's Dairy Fair Store in Sunnyside closed Friday, leaving 10 employees without a job.

"It was a difficult decision, but necessary," said Michelle Carter, calling from Darigold's corporate headquarters in Seattle. "The gift shop and deli was simply not making enough to cover its operating costs in this tough economic environment."

The Sunnyside cheese plant will remain in full production. It's one of 13 production facilities Darigold owns and the only one where cheese is made.
