“Dear PoPville,

I’m writing to encourage the community to show some love and support to the owners of Pan Am Fresh supermarket on Brown St. in Mount Pleasant due to the brazen robbery they endured on Tuesday morning. I spoke with a staff member the next day and she said the robber made a beeline for the register and twice pushed the owner down with such force that she was injured and an ambulance was necessary. This and the fact that it occurred in broad daylight is very disturbing. I live nearby and the owners are extremely kind and generous people. Not to mention their Indian cuisine is amazing and they always throw in extra food. If you’re in the area, please be sure to stop by and support this great small business.”
