    I am curious how the employees knew someone was trying to get in thru the roof. Is it normal practice for employees to check the roof every morning?

    We used to call this place the Tragic Market back in the day.

    When I lived at Cash Hall (next door to this store) in the 90s we called this place 'Stop and Rob'. It was robbed almost weekly and closed before dark because of this.
