REVERE (WBZ-AM) -- It's eerily quiet at the NECCO plant in Revere one day after the company unexpectedly shut down operations.
On Wednesday morning, there was a closed sign on the door. Nobody was answering phones, there were no signs of employees coming or going, and at Human Resources, a flyer was posted instructing the plant's 230 employees on how to get their final paychecks Friday.
Round Hill Investments bought the New England Confectionary Company back in May for $17.3 million at a bankruptcy auction, sparking hopes that employees would be able to hold onto their jobs after all. But now, the company is selling the NECCO brand to another candy manufacturer.
