As of 6:40 a.m. Sunday, power has been restored to downtown Westfield, according to Sherry Cronin, executive director of the Downtown Westfield Corportation.
Since Hurricane Sandy knocked out power to 90 percent of customers in Westfield, downtown merchants have been trying to make the best of a terrible situation, with many operating by flashlight or daylight.
Cronin said many businesses don't open until noon on Sunday, but some may open sooner if they can gather supplies.
"Manhattan Bagel is up and running," Cronin said.
During last evening's Mayor Andy Skibitsky noted that the storm has been tough on Westfield merchants and said the Town had been advocating on their behalf to get them "up and running as soon as possible." He said as they open again, think of Westfield first as many will need "an economic shot in the arm" to recover from the loss of business.
