    Once again, a Turkey Hill is robbed in the Wilkes-Barre area. I guess corporate has no desire to improve security at these stores.

      It’s more cost-effective to have less than $100 robbed than to pay someone to install a security system, storage for the footage, and maintenance of the system. Less than $100 kept in the till at any time; rest is in a heavy safe under the registers that the average employee does not have access to.

    Clerk with an open carry gun beats thief with a knife, pretty much each time it happens. I know of a couple of clerks that open carry in a convenient store, and oddly enough- they’re never robbed.
