Will Smash n' Grab Robberies Impact Your Holiday Shopping?


Many of America's high-end retailers have been targeted by coordinated, group burglaries. Could this scare consumers off from in-person holiday shopping?

What started out as something we saw up in the Bay area has made its way all over the state - Smash n' Grab robberies! First, these coordinated mobs were targeting luxury items such as Louis Vuitton handbags and luggage, or they were hitting high end stores like Saks and Nordstrom. Now, it’s happening at places like Target and Home Depot! 

As we see more and more of these flash mob style thieves hitting stores that you might shop at... will they impact your holiday shopping plans? Not just by increasing costs or cutting hours, but will they make you think twice about even stopping by your favorite stores?

I had to breakdown what is happening and the words Governor Newsom about it! Oh! And guess what we aren’t allowed to call these groups of people smashing doors and windows to steal all this stuff? ….”Looters.”

Yup. I’m serious. I’ll tell you all about it HERE!
