Operations at the Simplot Foods Aberdeen plant will continue until at least Thursday, July 31.
Simplot spokesman David Cuoio said the extension is based on an unexpected increase in demand for Simplot products.
“The Aberdeen plant will remain open until Thursday, July 31. The extension is due to an unanticipated demand by our customers,” Cuoio said.
While the changing deadline may make long-term planning more difficult Cuoio said the potato processor is thankful for the flexibility of the Aberdeen workforce.
“We appreciate the willingness of our Aberdeen employees to continue on the job to help fill those orders,” said Cuoio.
