Walmart is officially fleeing woke Portland, Oregon, because the city’s liberal prosecutors won’t do anything about the rampant retail theft that has swamped the city.
The company has announced that its last two stores will close in the west coast city.
According to Fox 12, the company published a statement on the closing.
“The decision to close these stores was made after a careful review of their overall performance. We consider many factors, including current and projected financial performance, location, population, customer needs, and the proximity of other nearby stores when making these difficult decisions. After we decide to move forward, our focus is on our associates and their transition, which is the case here.”
Fox 12 added:
People who live near the stores that are closing say the closure is going to have a big impact on them and low-income shoppers.
“Safeway is the go-to-store if I have to but that’s three times the price I would spend here,” Amanda Pahl said. “What are we going to do? You got to go further, then you have to spend gas money. Might as well pay for it at Safeway at this point.”
Walmart said that the stores were “not meeting financial expectations.” But what does that mean?
Like I said, it is because of rampant retail theft. The city idiots of Portland are not the only ones destroying their city with rampant retail theft.
San Francisco and L.A. are also having these problems.
