Our shop in Penzance was broken in to…. again!
Arriving at our Penzance shop early on the morning of Friday 19th January 2018, our staff were welcomed with a broken shop front door. Disappointingly we had been targeted again and this time the thieves had stolen money.
Since we opened our 5th shop in Penzance in March 2017 the support from the community has been fantastic and having heard about the burglary we’ve been inundated from customers expressing their disappointment that we’d been targeted (again).
With thanks, our dedicated shop staff were able to open the doors as usual on the Friday morning after the break in, as they didn’t want to let any of their customers down who were in need of food and drinks.
In comments to the local press our owner Giles Williams stated that his focus was to ensure his staff were OK and to take steps to ensure this didn’t happen again by reviewing the security at the shop.
Giles would openly like to thank the community for their support and has asked that if anyone has any information that they contact Penzance police quoting crime reference number: CR 0741901. He would also like it made public that he is offering ‘a free pasty a week for a year’ for anyone who has information that leads to an arrest.
Police enquiries are ongoing and we urge anyone who saw anything suspicious to contact the police as we need to ensure this doesn’t happen to us or any other local businesses again. The whole Cornish Oven team and staff at the Penzance shop unanimously feel “we won’t let these people affect us and the most important thing is nobody was hurt during this incident”.
Details: The break in occurred during the night of Thursday 18th January at our shop in Jelbert Way, Penzance.
