Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Pleads with Walmart, Other Retailers to not Abandon City

Retailers are understandably having second thoughts about remaining in certain cities, namely run by Democrats, after recent riots saw multiple large stores looted.

Mayor Lightfoot said she’s hopeful major retailers will reopen the Chicago stores that were looted or otherwise damaged during protests surrounding George Floyd’s killing by police in Minnesota. But, she’s unsure of one of the biggest.

Mayor Lightfoot said she was on a conference call with Walmart and other major retailers that had stores looted or heavily damaged during the unrest in Chicago. She said she pleaded with them to not abandon Chicago.
