Corporate pharmacy titan Walgreens has reportedly had enough of San Francisco’s continued crime wave.

The company has now decided to five stores due to what it describes as organized retail theft.

As The Hill reports:

The retailer made the announcement on Tuesday, saying five stores will close next month, SFGATE reported.

“Retail theft across our San Francisco stores has continued to increase in the past few months to five times our chain average,” Walgreens spokesperson Phil Caruso told the news outlet, noting that theft has increased despite increased security.

Walgreens has reportedly closed nearly 10 stores in San Francisco since 2019. The drug store chain closed one location in the city last year that lost nearly $1,000 a day to theft.

Widely circulated video and images of shoplifting has highlighted the problem, according to The Associated Press.

In addition to the scourge of constant robbery and shoplifting the Bay Area saw a massive surge in murders in 2020.

I think I would literally pack up and run. Why wait a month, so they can clear you out even more? No thanks, happily staying in Northern Wisconsin!

Closing 10 stores does not send any message. It’s a drop in the bucket.

Leave the libs there. They keep voting for those who keep wrecking cities. Then it gets intolerable, and they move to a red state and begin the infection again. They should be forced to live with the results of their village-idiot voting.
