Soon, local snake-charmers were called to catch the python. The snake-charmers had to vacate the entire refrigerator before pulling out the creature.
The media reports suggest that the python was rescued safely from the store and will be released in the national park.
Talking about the incident, the staff was quoted as saying that the python might have entered the store through the roof and drain.
"We have a lot of bush behind the shops and there are lots of snakes in there. We were telling people not to panic and reassuring them that it was safe," the manager of the store reportedly told Daily Mail.
