Computer Glitch Opens Grocery Store During Holiday

A Pak ‘n Save in Hamilton, New Zealand, was supposed to be closed last week to observe Good Friday. 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.

Even worse, the store’s lights were automatically turned on, making it look like the store was open and ready for business.

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.
