She said the perimeter would be set until police had either caught the suspect, or felt that he was no longer in the area.
Pyatt-Barrett said that the store did make use of surveillance cameras, and they do have videos from several other businesses that they hope will aid in identifying the suspect.
“We do have a couple of potential witnesses, and we hope they will be able to provide more information,” she said.
It was not exactly the way the store wanted to celebrate it’s one-year anniversary, and a posting on their Facebook page notified customers that they would be closing for the day shortly after the robbery occurred.
“Thank God that no one was hurt. I can't express how grateful I am for that,” said the posting on the store’s Facebook page. “Money is money — it comes and it goes. These folks who work here and make art for here and who shop here, I love. I'm so thankful that everyone is ok.
“Thanks to the authorities for getting to the shop so very quickly and taking the time to thoroughly investigate.”
