    Where in the mall is Services Unlimited located? Is it close to a mall exit?No matetr what the specific location, choosing to rob a store in a mall on a typically busy Sunday afternoon would seem to be more stupid than brazen, as there are virtually endless targets that would offer easier getaway paths while still having plenty of cash.Nevertheless, they obviously did get away.
