Neiman Marcus security guards struck by car in getaway
Written by Justin on March 28, 2008 at 6:18PM

  • Two Neiman Marcus security guards were hit by a car attempting to leave the premises with a $2,500 purse in hand. On March 10, after a Quincy woman was seen taking the purse, the detectives followed her to a parking garage, where she entered a car driven by a man from Hyde Park. When the guards tried to get the purse back by opening the car's doors, the man put the car in reverse, dragging one of the detectives.
  • In the process of escaping, the woman dropped the purse. While the car escaped, the guards got the licence plate of the car, and the duo were arrested by Boston Police shortly after.

  • Nordstrom opened their second Massachusetts store this morning at 10:00 a.m. at the Burlington Mall.
  • The Burlington store opened on the site of a former Filene's, and held many of the same pre-opening events as the Natick store did last September. These events included a grand opening gala earlier this week that raised over $160,000 for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the Junior League of Boston, and the Boston and Middlesex chapters of The Links, Incorporated. The Burlington Mall Nordstrom has an espresso bar, as well as Blue Stove - Nordstrom's newest restaurant concept.
  • Before the year is out, Nordstrom will have a third operation in Massachusetts - a Nordstrom Rack outlet store is slated to open this fall at the Liberty Tree Mall in Danvers.
