Acting Sergeant Everall said the vehicle had also knocked over a number of things inside the store.
Three double glass doors were damaged during the incident.
Police are still looking for the offender who was behind the wheel of the black Ford Ranger Wildtrak which was later found dumped not far from the scene.

Detective Senior Constable Derek Verity said it was just like they had gone for a joy ride through the shopping centre.
"It's just straight through, drive in and drive out the other side," he said.
He said there was no attempt to steal anything even though it drove right past an atm.
