SAUK RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) - The owner of a central Minnesota convenience store is fed up with recent robberies. So he’s offering a gas discount to bring people with concealed-carry permits to his store.

This week the Shell station in Sauk Rapids posted a sign on its door offering 10 cents off per gallon of gas for law enforcement or people with proof of a permit to carry guns. The discount is good every day after 7 p.m.

Owner Frank Schwagel tells WJON-AM (https://bit.ly/1Q23JtV ) he hopes the promotion will increase foot traffic in his store during evening hours.

The store has been robbed twice in the past three months.
