Whole Foods Shutting Flagship Location in San Fransico Due to Crime and Safety Concerns

In October of 2022, the Whole Foods cut its operating hours, citing “high theft” and hostile people.  “We’re spending more on security than any other store I would imagine,” the manager said. The store had only been open for 6 months, accord to the report.

In 2014, California adopted Proposition 47, which made thefts of $950 or less a misdemeanor. Once people realized that they were unlikely to be arrested or prosecuted for stealing below $1,000, they, of course, responded to the incentive. The stores advise employees not to interfere with shoplifters because they get hurt. Many crimes don’t even go reported.
