Police say that there was one person in the store at the time the two men came inside and ordered an employee to open a safe before making off with an undisclosed amount of cash.
In the video, one man can be seen pulling out a weapon with a drum magazine in a reflective yellow jacket before a second masked man follows him into the store holding a bag.
There were no injuries reported and the two men fled on foot from the area with the money, and it is believed that one of the two had been inside the business hours earlier.
