Allstate reopening Massachusetts offices
Allstate Insurance Co. is opening its first offices in Massachusetts since pulling out of the market 25 years ago because of the state’s then strict regulation of auto insurance rates. On Monday, Allstate opened an office in North Andover and said it plans to open two more offices elsewhere in the state by the end of the year. Allstate also hopes to add an unspecified number of locations in 2013, said a spokesman, Chris Conner.
