Initial investigations indicate shortly before 5am a man entered the Ruthven Street store armed with a syringe and demanded money from a staff member.
The man fled the store a short time later with a sum of cash and drove away in a red Mitsubishi lancer.
No one was physically injured during the incident.
The man was last seen wearing a white hooded jumper with black stripes, a black baseball cap. He has short scruffy brown hair and a beard.
Detectives are appealing for any information that might help locate the man responsible.
