It’s been a tough week for Wonderland Gear Exchange — they just had another break-in over the weekend.
The first one was the weekend before, when burglars smashed a window and stole a number of items from the store.
“Fortunately this time they were scared away before they could steal anything. They tried to break the door down before smashing another window in,” co-owner Ben Mawhinney tells My Ballard. “Our upgraded security system seemed to do the trick.”
Despite the set-back, Mawhinney and co-owner Nate Seiberling are making light of it on social media, posting the above photo to let their customers know.
“Guys, no need to break in, our sale starts soon” they wrote on plywood they put up to cover the broken window.
If you want to support the gear shop, they just ask that you check out their end-of-season sale happening the first week of April (March 30 – April 7).
