Police are appealing for footage after six people armed with an axe robbed a Hamilton store.

At about 1:15pm on Monday, the group entered the Maui Street Food Mart and stole tobacco and money, police say.

People in the store weren't injured but are shaken by what happened.

"Police investigating the incident are aware there were a number of people in the area at the time and are appealing to anyone who may have any footage which could assist," a police spokesperson says.

"Anyone who was in the Maui Street, Pukete, area between 1:00pm and 1:30pm on Monday and has any video footage, photographs or CCTV of the incident is asked to submit these to the investigation team."

An online portal has been set up so photos and videos can be uploaded.

Anyone else with information that can help is asked to get in touch with police by calling 105 and quoting file number 210726/9585.

Information can also be given anonymously by phoning Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
