Here we go again...some of America's finest enjoying California's special 100% off special. And again, it seems like Walgreens is the victim as a bunch of trash robs the place blind in broad daylight without any resistance or fear of arrest since the first 900 dollars worth of stolen booty is on the house, thanks to California law.
Just this week, the pharmacy chain Walgreens announced that it will close five of its stores in San Francisco, citing theft and retail crime as the main motivator behind its decision.
“Organized retail crime continues to be a challenge facing retailers across San Francisco, and we are not immune to that,” Walgreens spokesman Phil Caruso said. “Retail theft across our San Francisco stores has continued to increase in the past few months to five times our chain average. During this time, to help combat this issue, we increased our investments in security measures in stores across the city to 46 times our chain average in an effort to provide a safe environment.”
