One of my stores robbed 2 times in 2 weeks!

January 26th, 2007 at 01:26 am

It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted, alot has happened in that time! I'm doing well as far as staying on budget, although I have nothing new to add to my $20 challenge right now. I did ask my paper lady for any coupons that she throws away, I offered to pay if she would like and she is willing to give me all coupons left out of unsold Sunday newspapers! Any savings I get from this I will add to my challenge.

One of my stores has been robbed twice in two weeks! The first time someone busted in the door with a large brick at three am and took 2 twelve packs of Budweiser.......can you believe that? That's all they took! The second time was night before last and they held my cashier at knife point and demanded the money in the register....pretty scary stuff! Now we are all on edge about being in this particular store alone but hopefully these scared feelings will pass. This is the first time since I've taken over these stores that we've been broken into or robbed.

    Do you have a security system installed? Cameras? Alarm? How about a dozen armed guards?

    Scary stuff! Sorry to hear about that but I'm glad no one was injured.

    scary!...perhaps you should also set up a "check up" process, having the person that's in charge of the store call you (or you call someone else) at specific hours to see if everything is ok....

    Sorry to hear that, thank God no one was hurt...hope they catch the creep. Be careful, can you install cameras?

    We have 17 cameras in each store and we lock the laundry room side of the store after 9 pm. They havent caught the person as he was wearing a bandana tied around his face and a large hoodie, you could just barely see his eyes and he kept his head down most of the time.
