SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - More than five dozen people will be losing their jobs with the closure of a Sioux City bakery.

Bimbo Bakeries USA says it will close its Sioux City operation March 28. A company spokesman says 64 people and their union representatives have met with company personnel officials to discuss severance and other benefits.

Production will move to other Bimbo bakeries.

A regional vice president, Didier Moleres, says the company concluded that the aging Sioux City facility "could not compete in the marketplace."
