I decided to read a bit further. Some interesting tidbits:
Hmm… maybe they closed because the police refused to arrest the shoplifters? Whoops… maybe not…
Seems possible that losses due to theft are an excuse for closures that were previously planned in order to cut costs. Where I live, some Walgreens closed and were quickly replaced by Wawa stores instead.
But sure, it’s easy to ignore the details and just blame Democrats for supposedly being lax on crime. I’m not saying that is or isn’t a factor, but there’s much more going on here.
One of the stores was targeted at least five times by the same man, who drew widespread attention for raiding the store on a bike and was later arrested, the authorities said.www.nytimes.com
I originally was going to post something similar but that story was many months ago. The article posted above is from this week. So who knows. Maybe these specific stores weren’t part of the planned closures that had nothing to do with theft.
