Bolla Market

New York Gov. Kathy Hochul on Friday visited with Bolla Market President and CEO Harry Singh at the Garden City, New York-based convenience-store chain’s Lindenhurst location to announce a new plan to fight retail theft in New York. The two discussed new landmark protections against organized retail theft included in the state's fiscal-year 2025 Enacted Budget.

The governor's five-point plan includes increasing penalties for assaulting a retail worker; allowing prosecutors to combine items stolen from different stores when filing charges; going after third-party sellers; $40 million for retail theft units; and $5 million for added security.

Stewart’s Shops

Stewart’s Shops, Ballston Spa, New York, offered 99-cent single-scoop ice cream cones to customers on Mother’s Day, May 12.

The retailer will have its seasonal flavors—including Win-Place-Dough and Boston Cream Dream—available. Other seasonal flavors include tropical passion, brownie cheesecake, peanut butter pie, and Hip! Hip! Churr-ay.

Krist Oil

Krist Oil Co., Iron River, Michigan, offered a deal last weekend where customers that bought a $50 gift card also received an extra free $10 gift card. There was no limit on how many $50 gift cards a customer can buy.
