Dunkin’ Donuts, New Balance, NStar said they have received no reports of any employees being hurt in Copley Square explosions
Dunkin’ Donuts said that it has not received any reports that employees located near the explosions along the Boston Marathon route were hurt, but said that two of its stores are closed as a result of the evacuation of the neighborhood near the marathon’s finish line.
Atlantic Fish Co., a restaurant located two doors east of one of the explosions, currently has “no reports of injury to employees or guests” at the restaurant at 761 Boylston St. or its two nearby sister restaurants Abe & Louie’s and Joe’s American Bar and Grill, according to a statement posted on the company’s website.
All three restaurants are currently closed, and employees and customers have been evacuated.
“The safety of our employees and guests is our highest priority at this time,” said Bryan Lockwood, chief executive of Tavistock Restaurants, which runs the Back Bay restaurants. “We are awaiting additional information and details on the circumstances surrounding this unfortunate incident. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have been affected by this tragedy.”
Meanwhile, New Balance said that its employees are fully accounted for. As a Boston-based maker of athletic footwear, the company had more than 100 employees, guests, and runner on hand for the marathon. New Balance also has a store on Boylston.
Employees at the store felt the blast, but no damage has been reported, New Balance said.
Adidas, another sneaker company, also had a presence at the marathon.
“We are monitoring the situation carefully and are currently in the process of ensuring all of our employees are safe,” an Adidas spokeswoman said.
NStar, which has offices on Boylston Street, said it was unaware of any of its employees being injured.
NStar added that it would defer to city and state officials in deciding whether to have Back Bay employees report to work on Tuesday..
