Walgreens said Tuesday that it will be closing another five San Francisco locations, citing the ongoing rampant theft plaguing the city.

“Due to ongoing organized retail crime, we have made the difficult decision to close five stores across San Francisco,” a Walgreens spokesperson told FOX Business in a statement. “Each store will transfer prescriptions to a nearby Walgreens location within a mile radius and we expect to place the stores’ team members in other nearby locations.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Organized retail crime continues to be a challenge facing retailers across San Francisco, and we are not immune to that,” the spokesperson continued. “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.”


The report notes that Walgreens has already closed 10 of its stores in San Francisco since 2019, due to the escalating crime.

Ahsha Safai, a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, responded to the news in a series of Twitter posts. He wrote:

.@Walgreens will be closing 5 additional stores in San Francisco – including the one located at 4645 Mission St in the Excelsior.

I am completely devastated by this news – this Walgreens is less than a mile from seven schools and has been a staple for seniors, families and children for decades. This closure will significantly impact this community.

This is exactly why we need more presence on our commercial corridors and an expansion of the “10A” program to reduce and deter commercial retail theft.

The City needs to act with a sense of urgency to reduce and deter the number of incidents of commercial retail theft. That is exactly what the ‘10A’ legislation aims achieve as we approach the holiday season.

One Twitter user responded to the news, tweeting, “At what point do San Francisco Supervisors resign for failing their citizens? They voted to not have police respond to shoplift crimes < $1,000 & now they’re “devastated” stores r closing? They’re clueless & an embarrassment 2 municipal governance🔥.”

  1. Exactly if the city gives you permission to steal from a store for $900 without being put in jail and the security will be fired if they stop you then people are going to steal. Get your head out of your ass and tell Pelosi to do something about it. But she doesn’t give a shit because she has her f n ice cream.

  2. Their stupidity is increasing, they voted to defund the police so there are the consequences. Keep siding with the politicians and crime, you people deserved every bit of what’s happening in your cities. San Francisco, Oregon, New York, Chicago, etc. that’s what you people want! These cities are losing a lot of people including businesses, pretty soon will look like another Detroit. What a shame of liberal governments!

  3. Yay, the Democrats/liberals are getting what they asked for, NO POLICING, LOL. Good, live with it, it’s going to get worse under democratic leadership. Haha.

  4. Every business should leave that San Fran shit hole! An earthquake can flatten them , hopefully God will take out his Rath on this Devils lair!
