Loblaw plans to battle Amazon and Wal-Mart with online food operation
It’s been late in coming to Canada but online food retailing is expected to soon get a boost here. Already, U.S. behemoths Inc. and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. run food e-commerce in this country, but neither yet offers fresh food, such as fruits and vegetables. By later this year, grocer Loblaw Cos. Ltd. will launch a test e-commerce site that will include fresh food, with a “click and collect” operation that will allow consumers to order groceries from its website and then pick them up at the stores after employees have packed the goods. The company anticipates an aggressive roll-out if the pilot works out. (Source

Two ringleaders have already been convicted and are serving prison terms. Another five are accused of conspiracy to commit robbery, attempted robbery, attempted kidnapping and firearms offences. Staff Sgt. Mark Rahn explains Hasson Wilson, 46 is accused of being the mastermind behind the operation. “Over the course of the lengthy investigation, we observed him involved with several different groups of individuals. It appeared as though he was grooming them to commit crimes,” he said. A police investigation, named “Operation Volcom”, revealed the group of seven culprits was working together to target specific locations and were planning more attacks at the Canyon Meadows Cinema, Real Canadian Wholesale Club in the northeast, and Rocky Mountain Pawn.
