T-Mobile Becomes Latest Retailer in San Francisco to Shutter Flagship Store as City Faces Mass Exodus

Telecommunications giant T-Mobile has announced it will close its flagship store in downtown San Francisco amid increased crime and declining foot traffic.

The company’s store, located in the upscale department store of Union Square, spanned two stories and 17,000 square feet.

A company spokesperson provided a statement to SFGATE via email, citing a change in “retailer strategy.”

“We recently reshaped our retail strategy,” said the spokesperson.

“Employees have been offered roles within the company.”

Last week, The Daily Fetched reported that retail giant, Nordstrom, announced it would also be closing both of its stores in the city.

According to a memo, the company has decided not to renew its leases for its San Francisco Centre Nordstrom store and the Market Street Rack store.

“We’ve spent more than 35 years serving customers in downtown San Francisco, building relationships with them and investing in the local community,” Nordstrom wrote.

“But as many of you know, the dynamics of the downtown San Francisco market have changed dramatically over the past several years, impacting customer foot traffic to our stores and our ability to operate successfully.”

Unlike T-Mobile, Nordstrom confirmed in a statement, “The dynamics of the downtown San Francisco market have changed dramatically over the past several years, impacting customer foot traffic to our stores and our ability to operate successfully.”

A spokesperson for Westfield added that “a growing number of retailers and businesses are leaving the area due to the unsafe conditions for customers, retailers, and employees, coupled with the fact that these significant issues are preventing an economic recovery of the area.”

Whole Foods also announced the closure of one of its flagship stores just after a year in business in the city.

The decision came amid concerns about rampant crime threatening the safety of the store’s staff.

“Whole Foods’ closure — together with many other safety-related challenges we’ve seen recently — is Exhibit A as to why San Francisco can no longer afford not to solve our police understaffing crisis,” San Francisco Board of Supervisors member Matt Dorsey wrote on Twitter. “Our neighborhood waited a long time for this supermarket, but we’re also well aware of problems they’ve experienced with drug-related retail theft, adjacent drug markets, and the many safety issues related to them.”

A similar decision by Walgreens was also made to close some of its San Francisco locations due to the store repeatedly being robbed.

The closures signal a mass business exodus in San Francisco, which now has an awful reputation for shocking levels of crime and homelessness, ultra-left-wing ideology, and high taxes.
