Plenty of exits to soo many different streets and green areas, I’m actually surprised it doesn’t get rolled more.

I think you’ve described every shopping centre i’ve ever been to.

Major supermarket robberies = usually inside jobs, unless totally stupid and will appear on camera in all glory at some point.

Jumping the counter for till money isnt an inside job. Knowing the safe locations, timers, cashcount, panic buttons is.
