Police in Tauranga are looking for two men who robbed a foodmarket at gunpoint.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Turner says the men entered the Welcome Bay foodmarket on Welcome Bay Rd carrying pistols just after 6.30pm on Thursday, and left with money from the till.

The men, both thought to be in their 20s, were wearing hoodies and threequarter-length shorts and had bandannas covering their faces.

Police are appealing for information from the public.
