DC Dom Webster from Chorley Police said: “This must have been terrifying for the women working in the shop and they have understandably been left shaken by their ordeal. Thankfully they weren’t physically hurt.
“If you saw a man acting suspiciously in the area in the time leading up to or after this robbery, please get in touch. Similarly, if you have information you think could help, please come forward.”
The offender is described as white, in his late 30s to early 40s, of medium build with brown eyes. He had short brown facial hair and was wearing a lightweight waterproof black jacket and navy blue jogging bottoms.
