Police Looking for Pair Who Robbed ‘Rugged Warehouse” on Haywood Rd

I’ve never been to “Rugged Warehouse” and this might be the city boy in me talking but it sounds like a gay men’s fetish club. Their website seems to indicate they’re some sort of discount clothing chain. I haven’t seen any review of the store and can’t be bothered to go their myself to check it out, but I did see that they have an “F” rating from the Better Business Bureau.

Not that any of that matters to the story:

Police in Greenville are looking for two men involved in an attempted armed robbery at the Rugged Warehouse on Haywood Road.

Investigators say it happened around 11 p.m. on December 23 when the suspects, described as two black males, forced employees back into the store as they were leaving for the night.

One of the men had a handgun and pistol whipped the manager after the alarm sounded, according to employees.

They say the two men made off without getting any money.

If you have any information that may help investigators, you’re urged to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.

Hope they catch the two men who wanted to “pistol whip” other men in the back room of “Rugged Warehouse.” I suggest checking the Out of Bounds bookstore.

    From the looks of the “patrons” that I’ve seen coming and going into that store and the nearby Burlington Coat Factory, it’s where today’s fashionable thugs and crack hoes love to shop. I’ll be the only thing “Rugged Warehouse” doesn’t sell is belts. Their shoppers don’t believe in wearing belts.
