Actually you ARE getting paid for it. That is the law. If your employer requires you to remain in the premises, he has to pay you to do so. He has no choice in the matter.

Call a locksmith?

I could be wrong but I think locksmiths sleep at night.

Or they could have called their manager to explain what happened and see what they recommend to do in the situation?

The owner legally has to pay you for hours stayed and they cannot make you stay there. You didn't cause anything negligent to happen so that's one of the issues being the owner involves. They either call a locksmith (there are some with after hours) or they can get out of bed and watch their own place.

he broke the key.

What? No! What happens now is that your manager gets their lazy arse out of bed, calls an emergency locksmith, gets down to the shop and sends you home as soon they arrive. Managers aren't paid extra to look pretty; they're paid extra to deal with stressful and inconvenient shit like this.

33, if OP is a manager, this wouldn't be the first time they're closing.

Maybe it was their first closing shift as a manager. Some places where I've worked, when someone was promoted to manager, they didn't close alone for a while until they were a little more experienced.

Yeah I hadn't considered that possibility, OP just sounded kinda junior. I'd expect a manager to be more confident dealing with something like this but you never can tell.

That's not legal. Employers cannot mandate anything without paying you. They can, unfortunately, bully you into "volunteering" out of guilt. I hope that's not what happened to you OP!
