SAUK RAPIDS, MICHIGAN — A gas station convenience store that has been robbed twice in the past three months is taking an aggressive new action to thwart would-be robbers. The Shell station in Sauk Rapids is offering a 10 cent discount per gallon for law enforcement and those who can prove they have a valid concealed carry permit. As much as concealed carriers don’t like to flaunt their licenses about, that’s a pretty big enticement.
The offer, according to the Associated Press, is only valid after 7 p.m. When it gets dark, the owner wants to encourage those who are in a position to help to fill up their tanks. This discount effectively eviscerates retail gas profits at the pump but this owner seems to think the measure will make it much more of a hardened target for would-be robbers seeking to use the cover of darkness.
When lawless thugs don’t fear the night, it’s time to take new measures to protect your business. As a business owner, making patrons feel safe is important. If people are worried about getting robbed or being stuck in the middle of a robbery-in-progress, they’re less apt to want to stop and shop.
