If you attempted to handle the matter on your own and it has gone on for a year at this point I would say that yes, you may want to think about hiring at attorney

Not only can the attorney represent you in contacting the store but can assess the situation and if you have any possible complications with being allowed access they can address those as well. In situations like this it sometimes takes legal involvement before anyone will actually respond so as i said find yourself an attorney and good luck
