This quest is given to you by Vex. The HEIST job is similar to a Burglary, but you’re going to be doing it in a SHOP. Also, you’re going to often be robbing a STRONGBOX, which means you’ll be facing BETTER locks (like EXPERT locks). Vex will tell you to steal from a RANDOM shop at a RANDOM location.

Once you have the job, head off and find the shop. Being a shop, you can freely scout out the place and find the strongbox. In fact, if the shop owner isn’t shadowing you, you can steal from it right then and there (just be sure you are hidden). Otherwise, just break into the place at night and do it.

With the store robbed and the owner scared, return to Vex for your cut (400 Gold) and the job will be complete.

Skyrim is the homeland of the Nords, a fierce and proud warrior people who are used to the bitter cold and mountanous terrain that mark the lands of Skyrim. Wracked by civil war, and threatened by the return of the legendary dragons, Skyrim faces its darkest hour. You must make sense of this maelstrom, explore the frozen tundra and bring hope to the people. The future of Skyrim, even the Empire itself, hangs in the balance as they wait for the prophesized Dragonborn to come; a hero born with the power of The Voice, and the only one who can stand amongst the dragons. You are that Dragonborn.
