The incident occurred at around 9pm on Sunday 7 February when a man entered the Shell garage at the junction of the A556, Chester Road and the A49, Forest Road.
After entering the store the offender, who was possibly armed, threatened a women who was working behind the counter and demanded that she handed over all of the cash.
