Following an announcement by retail chain Walgreens that it’s closing five of its San Francisco stores due to retail theft, city Supervisor Ahsha Safai said Tuesday he’s hoping legislation he recently proposed can prevent stores from further closing locations.
According to Walgreens, next month it will close its locations at 2550 Ocean Ave., 4645 Mission St., 745 Clement St., 300 Gough St., and 3400 Cesar Chavez St.
“Due to ongoing organized retail crime, we have made the difficult decision to close five stores across San Francisco,” Walgreens said in a statement Tuesday.
