TARGET and Walgreens JOIN CVS in Lockdown – The NEW Face of Retail Security!

YouTube player

In a telling sign of the times, major retailers like CVS, Target, and Walgreens are reevaluating their operations amidst rising thefts. The latest strategy? Reducing store hours and securing high-theft items behind lock and key. This approach, especially notable in San Francisco, is a response to a surge in shoplifting incidents, impacting customer experience and store viability. A highlighted case is the San Francisco CVS in the Lower Haight neighborhood, slated for closure due to ongoing theft issues and a challenging retail environment exacerbated by online competition. This move follows CVS’s 2021 announcement to trim its national retail footprint by about 900 stores. While such measures aim to curb losses, they raise concerns about decreased community access to essential services and the broader implications of retail shrinkage in urban neighborhoods.
