A man in his early to mid-20s walked into the store and showed a knife to the attendant at the register and demanded money. The robber fled with an undisclosed amount of cash in a dark-colored, four-door sedan heading east toward the Taconic State Parkway, police said.

The attendant was not hurt, police said.
