    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A South St. Paul man is accused of stealing 20 bottles of high-end scotch whiskey from a Burnsville liquor store, before trying to sell them on Craigslist. The Dakota County Attorney’s Office charged 57-year-old Dewayne Lee Goodman Thursday with one felony count of theft in connection with the incident on Jan. 16. The criminal complaint says store employees provided police with surveillance footage of the theft and a list of the bottles stolen. Investigators then found a Craigslist ad featuring the exact bottles, and were able to identify Goodman as the suspect. Liquor store employees then called 911 on Jan. 26 to report that Goodman had returned. Police just happened to be in the area at the time due to a theft at a nearby store — where Goodman allegedly put hundreds of dollars’ worth of items into a shopping cart and left without paying. Police arrested him at the scene. Goodman could face several years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.   More On WCCO.com: Minnesota Dad Makes Thousands A Month Reselling...

The South Korean tech giant's high-end flagship devices are "trophy" products that signal to the industry at large the kind of innovation the company has in store for the rest of its product line, Bryan Ma, vice president for devices research at International Data Corporation said.

    LOGAN SQUARE — A shop selling a curated selection of high-quality everyday home goods such as brooms and dish towels is coming to Fullerton Avenue in Logan Square. Kitty Izzo, whose family runs the Logan Square bar Park & Field, is behind the shop at 3505 W. Fullerton Ave., called Logan Mercantile.

    Manhattan’s fanciest retailers and restaurants are back — just in time for a really rough winter. There’s been a surge in recent weeks of high-end fashion boutiques and restaurant reopenings in central Manhattan, despite record unemployment, rising crime, municipal revenue shortfalls, schools chaos — and a COVID-19 infection uptick that’s fueled fears of a second virus wave. While empty shops abound around town, Bergdorf Goodman — the city’s priciest department store — recently reopened for full service after providing by-appointment-only shopping since June 24. It first welcomed the public back for a few midday hours in August before expanding its hours to 6 p.m. a few weeks ago and to 7 p.m. starting next week. The luxury emporium even set up its seventh-floor restaurant, BG, outdoors, with the cafe’s signature gold “pod” chairs startlingly standing on the Fifth Avenue sidewalk. Bergdorf’s rebirth is notable given that parent Neiman Marcus emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy only a few days ago and recently closed its Hudson Yards store. Per Se, the town’s most expensive restaurant with a $335-per-person tasting menu reopens for...
