Computer Glitch Opens Grocery Store On Good Friday
A Pak ‘n Save in Hamilton, New Zealand, like many stores, was supposed to be closed last week to observe the Good Friday holiday. Unfortunately, it appears the grocery store’s technology never got the memo.
According to reports, a glitch in the store’s security system caused its doors to electronically unlock at 1AM Friday morning, leaving them open for an additional eight hours.
And get this, the store’s lights were automatically turned on, making it look like the store was open and ready for business, with not a single employee in sight.
While it’s true that police were finally contacted when someone saw a thief emerging from the store with “truckloads” of items, it should be noted that 12 Good Samaritans actually used Pak ‘n Save’s self-serve check out aisle to pay for their goods. In that respect, it was a Good Friday.
