Target says it will close all 6 of its stores in San Francisco early because of a huge spike in crime and shoplifting.
The Democrat hell hole of San Francisco is the ONLY city in the US that Target has decided to close early because of organized retail crime.
Marxist San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin made it clear that prosecuting shoplifters is low on his priority list and his ‘no arrest’ policy is destroying brick and mortar businesses.
Thieves can pretty much ‘legally’ walk out of a retail store with up to $950 in merchandise without paying and get away with it because of Democrat policies.
ABC 7 reported:
Target has now acknowledged that San Francisco is the only city in America where they have decided to close some stores early because of the escalating retail crime.
For more than a month, we’ve been experiencing a significant and alarming rise in theft and security incidents at our San Francisco Stores, similar to reports from other retailers in the area.
Target isn’t the only store in San Francisco to make changes because of the continuous shoplifting. After 10 p.m. the 7-Eleven on Drumm St. in the Financial District only does business through a metal door. But first you have to ring the bell to let them know you’re outside.
Walgreens has already closed several stores for the same reason and security guards like Kevin Greathouse are told not to physically engage with those shoplifting.
“It’s going to be lawsuits, obviously they don’t want ourselves or anybody else to get injured while we’re out here attempting to make these apprehensions and leave it to law enforcement,” said Greathouse.
