The store was closed but the doors were defective and came open, so shoppers made their selections, and left the money in piles near the cash registers. The police finally came, found all peaceful, no looting or theft occurring! Would you pay if there were no store employees? Would you mind the "honor system"?

I wonder if they could tell the store was closed from the outside? Most grocery stores leave the lights on, and if you see customers inside, it might have looked like it was open for business. If I went in and found out it was closed, I would probably get what I needed and yes, I would have paid. I would have thought that it was possible the store managers wouldn't get the money, but MY conscience would be clear. (Karma, you know.) Not too many stores are open on Christmas Day, so finding another open store might have been hard.

Interesting story. I use to live in a small town neighboring Roseville in Placer County. The store is located next to a very big, busy mall and busy Highway and Freeway Junction. Nice place to live.
My husband is in the gorcery business. I'll pass the story along-
