Harry & David plans to hire thousands of workers for its call centers this year, despite ongoing bankruptcy court proceedings.

Interim Chief Executive Officer Kay Hong, who succeeded Steve Heyer as the company’s leader in February, issued a memo this week stating the company plans to hire 6,000 workers beginning in May and into the holiday season, including 1,400 for its Medford call center and another 1,000 at its Hebron, Ohio, call center.
