INSIDE INDEED. I got ROBBED in that store BY THEIR OWN EMPLOYEE. Who stole my 3 year olds sealed bday card, that had a target gift card inside it, right outta my cart. INSIDE JOB? LMFAO. Who but an insider would pick the CRAFT STORE to rob??? They employ thieves who steal ON THE CLOCK but assume the same losers wouldnt steal when not watched? You reap what you sow.
Even gave the thief a chance to Do The Right Thing by leaving my # and a No Questions Asked policy if it was “found”. Thought once they realized they were stealing a 3-year-olds bday card&gift they’d surely feel disgusting & sad enough 2 rethink it. I was sadly mistaken.


LMAO— “craft making college girl(s)”?!?
No offense “pro nobody”, but u CLEARLY ain’t been to THIS store. More like “Woodside Projects Welfare Rejects”. If you can interrupt their personal convos to ask for help, they’re either too lazy to bother, or too INEPT to know where to direct you.Never of the dozen+ I went there was I not sent searching in the wrong aisles entirely by a “worker”


I went to that parking lot, was in the bank 10mins, and someone stole the centercaps off my cadillac.

professional nobody

LOL some craft making college girls doing an inside job, not likely. there are lots of ways to get into a safe.
