Customers helped nab suspected shoplifter

We would like to thank our loyal customers who came to the aid of the owner of Coast Do it Best Hardware, Bonita Doerksen, on April 18 as she was apprehending a shoplifter.

At 2 p.m., it was made known that there was a shoplifter in the business. Upon learning this, Bonita approached the woman and asked her to produce a receipt for the items in her purse. She resisted, which ultimately resulted in an altercation between the two women.

We wanted to give a shout out and a big thank you to the customers who helped Bonita contact the police and locate the woman after she ran from the business.

We value our customers and this is another shining example of their loyalty to our business. We sincerely appreciate all of you and would love to give a big “Thank you” to the customers that helped us with this unfortunate incident.

So, thank you!
