Economy On the Rise In Ada

2-17-06- Residents in Ada have noticed the rapid growth in their town lately. And after the opening of Home Deport back in July, more businesses are setting up shop in Pontotoc County.

Chili’s is set to open sometime in March in the North Hills Shopping Center. Across the street, a Holiday Inn Express is scheduled for construction and even Applebee’s will make a home in Ada soon.
