According to St. Louis County police spokesman George Vaughn, officers were dispatched at 9:50 a.m. to a robbery at the AT&T store at 7345 South Lindbergh.
The two robbers arrived at the store in a beige or brown vehicle, possibly a larger Buick, which was parked in the alley onto Lemay Ferry, said Vaughn.
One robber, wearing a tan boonie-style hat and blue or green shirt, showed a handgun. Police said the robbers were last seen heading out of the store's south exit.
