It's the call that ruined what should have been a joyous day for this new dad.

While in the delivery room with his wife, Chris Rummel got a call from Ahold USA telling him he was losing his job.

The wholesale supplier, where Rummel is an overnight stocker, is cutting 600 jobs and closing their WNY warehouse operations in Cheektowaga and Lancaster.

Company officials say these facilities are no longer in markets with retailers they serve.
