The Swedish department store that was rammed by a stolen beer truck, leaving four people dead and 15 injured in Stockholm, said Sunday it regrets an announcement that it would reopen two days after the deadly attack to sell damaged goods at a "reduced price."
The Ahlens department store apologized "for a bad decision" in a statement on its Facebook page. It said its motivation "was born out of the idea of standing up for transparency and not allowing evil forces take control of our lives."
The store said it would reopen Monday "without any damaged goods."
A fire broke out Friday afternoon at the store after the truck smashed into its entrance on Stockholm's pedestrian Drottninggatan street. It was quickly put out by firefighters.
Police have arrested a 39-year-old native of Uzbekistan and say they believe he deliberately drove the truck into shoppers.
