    That’s awful! She is such a nice lady and she sells everything for such cheap prices! (clothes are only $1) The burglars could have purchased the stuff rather inexpensively. Her profits go to fund her rescue efforts.
    I hope the community supports the store and I hope that the thief is found. :(
