Hess spokesman Dennis Moynihan issued a statement today.

"Our commitment to competitive prices and customer services – it will not change. The brand is strong, and it will live long into the future." Moynihan said there are a lot of people interested in that Hess toy truck program, and that will certainly not be going anywhere.
