ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Mini Mart on Stuart Avenue still does not have answers to Friday night's questions, like how much money the robber stole and who he is.  

The store's owner said he has been robbed before.

Albany native, Gabrielle Clyde has been shopping at the Mini Mart for about two years, buying various items. But her sporadic trips to the Mini Mart won't end just because of last night's robbery.

"Yeah, I'm going to still keep coming. It happens. You know, stuff like that happens in life and you just got to still keep going," Clyde said. 

She doesn't live close by the 2400 block of Stuart Avenue, but enjoys visiting the store.

"It's a cool store," Clyde said.

According to the owner, who asked to remain anonymous, she's just one of his more than a hundred customers he sees each day.

From the surveillance footage, the owner did not say if the man who robbed the store looked familiar. 

"I hate that that happened to him. And I wish we could prevent stuff like that from happening," Clyde said. 

Clyde remains confident in shopping at the Mini Mart.

"No, I'm not scared at all. Cause like I said, you know that stuff happens so you can't go through life being scared. 

For now, she encourages people to keep coming to the store.

People who have information about this robbery are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 229-436-8477.
