San Francisco Targets, 7-11, and Walgreens Have to Dramatically Cut Hours Due to Democrat Enabled Theft Problem in Retail Stores

Three Californian Democrat-run cities are being reported as in the top ten when it comes to organized retail crime. This statistic has been reported by the California Retailer’s Association. Despite pushing a leftist, woke message in hopes to garner higher profits and more favor with rich wall street Democrats, Target and Walgreens are losing money to theft.

This is directly related to the policies from Democrats they claim to support. It’s a surprise to us that these woke companies don’t just make everything free instead. That’ll own the GOP! Nonetheless, Target and Walgreens are reportedly having to adjust their store hours to account for the thefts.

Many Democrat cities are making it hard to stop or prosecute those who are stealing below a certain dollar amount of goods from retail stores. You won’t hear these woke companies publicly speak out about this issue, but you can bet your butt they’re noticing it in the board rooms and in the bottom lines, and large shareholders will certainly have questions.

Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Sacramento are the three cities on the list.

According to local affiliate ABC 7:

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.

“This window was installed like two to three months ago because it was not safe. Sometimes they would break that glass of the door,” explained Manager Bobby Singh.

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.

In our view, it’s time for woke corporations to put their money where their mouths are and either give stuff away in poor cities or admit that Democrat policies are harmful to their bottom lines and make it loud and proud. We doubt they will do either thing though.
