Contacting city government to petition they stop allowing SFPD services in place of security guards on a for-profit corporate store like Walgreens when 99.9% of San Francisco citizens have no problem cooperating wiht mask requests.

Original review updated by user Apr 29, 2021

I walked into Walgreens on March 25, 2021 waiting for my bike repair in order to browse. At the mouth of entry there was an enormous sign blocking entry threatening "it's against the law not to wear a mask".

The sign cited a city statute. I decided to walk out of the store in that environment and noticed an SFPD officer was sitting behind the sign to the right waiting to arrest someone. It's a nice neighborhood, no need to threaten tax payers this way.

SFPD is unnecessary, there are security guards available. I'll never walk in there again.

User's recommendation: CVS is a better store, they respect their customers and don't treat them like criminals setting them up this way.

Preferred solution: Apology.

Walgreens Pros: Many stores.

Walgreens Cons: Overkill police services.

Location: 2120 Polk Street, San Francisco, CA 94109

You have no idea why the SFPD is there. There was an article in The San Francisco Chronicle in October 2020 about a Walgreens closing for good on November 11th.

The article also states that in 2019-****, this is the seventh Walgreens to close due to shoplifting. So don’t worry why they are there.
