San Francisco has turned into a hell hole. The rampant homelesness, drug use, crime, lack of policing and other 3rd world conditions have turned a once great American city into a disaster. Now a major retailer is fleeing those horrendous conditions.
Western Journal reports. The CEO of an outdoor clothing company is shutting down a San Francisco retail location — after just one year in the left-wing city.
Cotopaxi CEO Davis Smith outlined why the company has decided to close its Hayes Street location in a Tuesday LinkedIn post. Smith’s LinkedIn post featured two photos of broken and boarded-up windows.
Smith further outlined a pattern of property crimes, theft, and burglaries affecting his company’s San Francisco location in a Thursday interview with KABC-TV. “Dozens and dozens and dozens of instances. It happens multiple times a week,” Smith said of crimes affecting the business.
The crimes began almost as soon as the clothing store opened.
The CEO said “Within the first couple days of being open, we come in the morning and see that our entire front window is smashed in, and they’ve looted our store,”
“Our team is terrified,” Smith says after describing a litany of crimes and robberies targeting the store. Smith said on LinkedIn that his employees at the Hayes Street location feel unsafe.
Despite security guards, a locked front door and a metal security gate, the crimes continued.
Smith is blaming city authorities and local law enforcement for inaction in the face of the neighborhood’s condition, and closing the store until the situation improves.
This news comes after another major company is blaming a crime ridden liberal ran city for its lack of employees.

When will the left wake up, and realize that the idealistic policies they are putting in place are absolutely harming people, and causing untold amounts of damage to the economy. The left cares more for virtue signaling than they seem to care about actual virtue, and the crime statistics prove that point. CEO Dave Smith was spot on when he blamed leadership for failing the once great city of San Francisco, it is indeed a failed city now. Chicago is yet another example of a failed city as the leadership under Lori Lighfoot has caused that city to spiral down the drain. The left neds to stop virtue signaling, and actually perpetuate virtue and righteousness and enforce the law, not give preferential treatment to any group or class because of equity. I wonder what happened to all men are created equal.
