Pretty sure I had a look of shock on my face when the news broke that the beloved ABC & Toy Zone store in Rochester, Minnesota was closing.  A banner was put up announcing the closing and a bunch of "store closing" signs were put up.  Unfortunately, a few kids on Thursday decided to make things difficult for ABC & Toy Zone.

Kids Caught On Camera With Signs Missing From ABC & Toy Zone in Rochester

A photo popped up on a few social media pages on Thursday showing the faces of kids holding the ABC & Toy Zone "store closing" signs that were placed by the store.  The signs were up for about a day - that's it - and were then seen in the hands of the teenagers and running down Civic Center Drive.

ABC & Toy Zone put a plea out on their Facebook page asking very nicely to have the signs returned.

The photo of the kids holding the signs was in the Facebook post but unfortunately, the post was removed.  I do have a copy of it, and the teens were clearly holding the signs and several of their faces can be seen.

UPDATE:  I did reach out to ABC & Toy Zone to check on this and they sent me the following note:

"They are coming back 🙂"

Hopefully, if the signs actually get returned but the teens should also be giving ABC and Toy Zone an in-person apology.

And like I say all the time, there are cameras EVERYWHERE now.  Why would you do this when you know your photo is going to pop up somewhere?
