REGIONAL—The growing issue of online security hit the North Country this week as Grand Rapids-based L&M Supply acknowledged an unauthorized breach of credit and debit card information from the company’s online store.
The company revealed the breach in an April 23 letter to customers who shopped on the company’s online site.
The breach did not affect credit or debit card purchases from any of the company’s retail stores located in the region. L&M Supply maintains retail facilities in ten cities in northern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin, including stores in Mt. Iron and Hibbing.
