Also why was the window left open? Report Reply 1 reply · active 362 weeks ago +7 Vote up Vote down Robert · 362 weeks ago Maybe insurance will cover some of the costs (after deductables). The overall feeling is one of sadness. It takes guts to open and run a business and it benefits our town —- and then to have someone rob you of your hard-won earnings ………. !!!

Report Reply 1 reply · active 361 weeks ago +2 Vote up Vote down Guest · 361 weeks ago Hate that any business is robbed. That amount of money I am sure is used to purchase groceries for the week and pay employees so it would be hard to reopen if you have to come up with more money out of pocket.

Just a thought.
