The two men attempted to steal a cash machine by driving a van into the store causing damage to the Co-operative, Macie Drive, Corsham.
The van has been reported to have been stolen from Chippenham on Christmas Eve and described as a blue VW transporter which was reversed many times into the entrance of the shop.
One of the men attempted to remove the cash machine however realised it could not be removed and fled the scene.
The van was found in the Freestone Area close to the shop. Police believe the two men escaped the scene in another vehicle.
Detective Sergeant Simon Pope of Melksham CID said: "We are very keen to hear from anyone who might have seen a white car being driven suspiciously in the Katherine Park area late on Thursday night."
Wiltshire Police are looking for the men who were described as wearing black clothing and hooded tops.
Anyone who may have information about the incident is asked to call Wiltshire Police on the 101 non emergency number and be put through to Melksham CID. Alternatively information can be given to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
All information can be given anonymously.
