Thanks to the readers who let us know that Alma Pita and Agnes Cleaners on Wilson were broken into last night. When people passed there this morning, both doors were smashed and police were present. We hear a few things were taken from the dry cleaners; no information yet on Alma Pita.
This looks like the same thing that happened to Chinese Connection a few days ago, and rumor has it this is the eighth time businesses in Uptown have had their glass smashed in a robbery attempt.
We hope Agnes and Robert, and Alma and Harjit, can clean up the messes quickly, and hope they can reopen soon. What a pity for this to happen to some of our oldest - and best - mom-and-pop Uptown stores.
