(Hadley, MA) — Owners of nine businesses destroyed by the Route Nine Hadley fire have received checks from the community. The Norwottuck Shops burned to the ground in October destroying a dozen small businesses, many run by immigrants. At Hadley Town Hall Thursday, a total of 52-thousand-dollars was distributed from a fund run by the United Way. Owners of Mi Tierra restaurant and Banh Mi Saigon say they are working hard to get back on their feet.
