The Co-op in Cox Green was closed on Sunday morning following a robbery on Saturday night.
Thames Valley Police has confirmed it is investigating after a robbery was reported at the Cox Green Lane store at 9.45pm on Saturday night.
Cash and cigarettes were stolen and staff threatened, but no one was injured in the raid.
Thames Valley Police has confirmed it is looking for three men in connection with the raid.
The group, who were wearing dark clothing, balaclavas and gloves, apparently stuffed cash and cigarettes into a ‘fabric bag’ before escaping in a vehicle – possibly a white van.
One of the men may also have been carrying a metal bar.
No one was hurt and no customers were in the shop at the time.
Detective Inspector David Turton, from Maidenhead CID, said: “Detectives are investigating this robbery and I would like to speak to anyone who saw what happened or who saw anyone acting suspiciously in the area at around the time of the robbery.
“Additionally if anyone saw a white van in the area at this time, please come forward and speak to police.”
Contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 with information.
The candidates standing in the upcoming Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner election have outlined their priorities for policing in the region.
A Maidenhead restaurant has said that new temporary outdoor seating provided by the council has helped keep the business afloat and hopes an al fresco dining culture will continue in the town.
