Three men and a woman are today being questioned after a raid at Chaucer News in Sittingbourne.
It comes after knife-wielding thugs burst into the Chaucer Road business at about 6.45pm yesterday.
And Mr Chambers and his wife Jan were left counting the cost last month after a motorist drove into the front of the shop they have run for 20 years.
Then six days later, more than £4,000 of cigarettes were stolen during a break-in where thieves tried to smash the window of the front door.
When that failed, they forced the lock to get into the shop. Speaking about previous robbery, Mr Chambers said: "It's been a bit of an eye-opener.
"It's not an every day occurrence to be targeted as much as this in a short space of time. "We’re going to lose money because the insurance company will only pay out so much.
"We're now looking at having cameras installed inside and outside, and changing our opening hours at the weekend to make sure there are more people around."
