The company’s chief stores officer notified employees in an email that “the dynamics of the downtown San Francisco market have changed dramatically over the past several years, impacting customer foot traffic to our stores and our ability to operate successfully.”
Those dynamics involve the homelessness and crime that result from liberal policy. Derelicts are lavishly subsidized. Shoplifting is effectively legal in San Francisco. Crime control consists of paying thugs not to shoot people.

One of the stores was at the Westfield mall, according to whose owner, “a growing number of retailers and businesses are leaving the area due to the unsafe conditions for customers, retailers, and employees.”
Even a company that would seem a natural fit for the kooky liberal elitists of San Francisco is bailing out:
In April, the Whole Foods in downtown San Francisco closed its doors just one year after opening due to deteriorating street conditions, namely increased drug use and crime, nearby.
Walgreens has been forced to close 17 stores in San Francisco.
No wonder a majority of San Francisco residents are considering leaving.
Unfortunately, with the same sort of people running the federal government, they will soon run out of places to go. Gavin Newsom will likely be our next president if Democrats are forced to abandon the Weekend at Biden’s shtick and Republicans nominate someone unelectable. He used to be Mayor of San Francisco.
