Repeated Robberies at Labrador Mini Mart stores in Happy Valley - Goose Bay

Robbery.jpgJoel Leynes There was another armed robbery in HVGB last night…a woman working at the Labrador Inn suffered minor injuries during the holdup. It was the second armed robbery in a week. A convenience store was held up last Wednesday when someone came in with a cleaver in hand. The store chain is a constant target for armed robbers, making it difficult to keep and recruit employees. The chain has recently hired staff from the Phillipines to help. It wasn’t long before one of those new workers was held up. Reporter Colleen Connors stopped by the Mini Mart on White Crescent to talk with Joel Leynes and with Manager Connie Saunders, who is trying to make the stores a safer place to work.
