Business digest — Jan. 24

Fundraiser nets nearly $5,000

A fundraiser dinner, dance and silent auction for the Melrose Tire Shop held Jan. 15 in Melrose netted $4,895.

The money will help defray rebuilding costs for the tire shop, which was damaged in an October fire. The owner, Dale Bigler, did not have insurance for the property and will likely need to spend $400,000 on rebuilding the business — which featured a tire shop, convenience store and restaurant.

Future events are planned, and donations are still being accepted at the shop.
