Police confirm an armed robbery took place at Brooklands Co-operative food store in Sale over the weekend.
The store was robbed at around 10pm on June 24 by four men aged between 18 and 25-years-old with only two members of staff on duty.
Staff tells us that all their cigarettes was stolen during the raid all the tills were taken and a safe in the back we are told over £1000 was robbed in cash.
As a result of this incident, the store has now hired a security guard, but expect the guard to be gone after a week or so, we have also noticed the guard changes on a daily basis.
The robbers did not hurt anyone during the incident although one member of staff was shaken up by the incident and was given some time off to recover, all the men got away in a waiting car.
If you witnessed this, or saw the robbers either going in or coming out, please contact police on the 101 number.
