More than $15k stolen from store

About $15,000 worth of cigarettes and unknown quantity of cash was stolen from Mac’s Convenience Store in Tottenham after someone broke in through the roof of the building early Tuesday morning. The thieves cut the phone lines to the building, before cutting a hole in the roof and then disabling the alarm panel inside the store, said Sean Sportun, the director of loss prevention for Mac’s Convenience Stores in central Canada. The culprits physically removed one small safe in the store, before moving on to crack open the big tobacco safe at the back of the store, Sportun said. The small safe had about $800 in cash. The tobacco safe also had an undisclosed amount of cash. Sportun said he suspects the strike was a professional job, given the expertise required to disable the alarm and crack the safe. He said there have been about six rooftop break-ins to Mac’s stores across Ontario this year, but he doesn’t know if they are related. The break-in happened between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. The culprits exited through the back door, police said. They were wearing black hoodie sweatshirts and masks. There were at least two culprits and perhaps a third, police said. They are believed to be male. Damage to the roof and the safes is expected to be several thousands of dollars.

Flyerland.ca is going multicultural

Flyerland.ca, the online product produced by Metroland, is launching a Chinese version of its website. “It’s (one of) Canada’s largest ethnic groups and just as Chinese newspapers are very popular, Chinese people like to read a lot of their information in their first language,” said Alvin Brouwer, vice-president of advertising and product development with Metroland. Flyerland.ca is now available in both traditional and simplified Chinese. A French version is being launched next week, and Punjabi and Hindi are expected to follow in the future. To view the Chinese version, go to , , or . Flyerland.ca launched March 17, 2008 and gets more than 10 million page views a month. “It’s national so you can search for 10,000 cities and towns across Canada and get not only national retail offerings, deals and coupons, but offerings from local retailers, too.” Given the current situation of the economy, Brouwer said it’s good timing to launch a multi-lingual product offering flyers and coupons.
