He approached the counter, wearing a long skirt, blonde wig and wide-brimmed hat, and pulled out what appears in security vision to be a home-made gun.
The staff member handed over a quantity of cash which the man placed in a bag, along with the fake machine gun, before he exited the store.
There were customers in the store at the time however no one was injured during the incident.
Police are still searching for the man.
