Meteorologist's stolen credit card used at Natick
Written by Justin on November 29, 2007 at 3:32PM

  • 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.
"Evening of Giving" cancelled at Natick Collection
Written by Justin on November 24, 2007 at 10:33PM
  • 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.

F/NR's Black Friday wrap-up
Written by Justin on November 24, 2007 at 10:09PM
  • Was November 23rd a busier shopping day than September 7th here in MetroWest? The answer seems to be yes.
  • 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.
