Staff at Tatura Farm Supplies remain hopeful the 1939 National cash register stolen on Australia Day will be returned.
After sharing the disappointing news on social media, owner Caroline Minns has been overwhelmed by the support from the online community.
Her Facebook post has been shared more than 1100 times across Victoria and other states.
‘‘There has been so much support online. It’s been so lovely,’’ Ms Minns said.
Although not hugely valuable, the register held a large sentimental value for Ms Minns, who specifically searched for the item and came across it at an antique store in Tyabb.
‘‘Everyone loved the old till. People would often comment on it when they entered the store,’’ Ms Minns said.
‘‘I’m honestly just bamboozled. The till was open and no cash was inside the premises.’’
Security will be ramped up at Tatura Farm Supplies in an attempt to ward off burglaries and move on from the incident.
‘‘We’re going to get extra security up and running soon,’’ Ms Minns said.
‘‘Everything is back to normal apart from me having to find a new cash register.’’
