By RHIANNON HORRELL

stranded inside a Grey Lynn oppor-
tunity shop last Wednesday while
The shop, on Great North Rd, has
two levels and sells second-hand
homewares and knick-knacks.

It is odd given that on that par-
ticular occasion I had an intuition.''
He says the person trapped inside
likely would have heard the loud
roller door being shut. He also says
there aren't any particularly valu-
able items which could have lured a
thief into the store.
I would like to meet this person
and hear their side of it.''
