"Evening of Giving" cancelled at Natick
- She probably wasn't able to
forecast this. WBZ-TV (Ch. 4) meteorologist Mish Michaels, whose wallet
was stolen at a Newbury Street restaurant on November 24th, had
nearly $4,800 of purchased charged to the stolen cards later that
evening at the Natick Collection.
- After the wallet was stolen
around 6:00 p.m., Nicola Clark of Mattapan went on a shopping spree at
the Collection, purchasing items from Sears, Victoria's Secret, Macy's,
and Louis Vuitton. Meanwhile, Michaels cancelled all but one of her
cards, leaving one card active to track the thief. Around 9:30 p.m.,
Clark was stopped by police, who found Michaels' credit cards on her.
Police also arrested two other Boston women who were accused of
assisting in the thefts.
- Was the fact that the card
wasn't used on Newbury Street the ultimate compliment to the Natick
Collection? Whatever the case, the story from the MWDN is online at http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/homepage/x588179266.

F/NR's Black Friday wrap-up
- What would have been the Natick
Collection's 10th annual "Evening of Giving," a shopping event in which
proceeds go to charity, was cancelled this year. According to the mall,
the event was cancelled to focus on other seasonal events at the mall,
and the low profits of the event ($3,000, split across several
charities) was minimal when considering the mall's $150,000 donation
earlier this year to Children's Hospital and the Doug Flutie Jr.
Foundation for Autism, along with ongoing projects with the Greater
Worcester Habitat for Humanity.

- Was November 23rd a busier
shopping day than September 7th here in MetroWest? The answer seems to
- With some stores, such as J.C.
Penney and Kohl's opening at 4:00 a.m., and most stores opening by 6:00
a.m., the early-but-devoted crowd found quite a few deals. The Best Buy
in Framingham had nearly 2,000 people out front when the store opened
at 5:00 a.m.
- But for many mall retailers not
having huge sales, the day's sales were only slightly above a normal
day's sales. At the Abercrombie & Fitch at the Solomon Pond Mall in
Marlborough, internet shopping and gift card sales had only normal
crowds looking at clothing.
