Crime is killing Dem-run cities.
A Rite Aid in New York City is now closing due to a string of thefts.

A Manhattan Rite Aid that’s been plagued by a rash of shoplifting has shut its doors.
The Hells Kitchen drug store, once a 24-hour location near the corner of Ninth Avenue and West 50th Street, was barren Thursday morning with photos showing empty, stripped shelves and no staff members in sight.
Rite Aid confirmed the closure and announced previously the store was slated to shut on Tuesday.
Last month, staffers at the location told The Post brazen thieves stole more than $200,000 in merchandise in December and January alone — part of a scourge of shoplifting that’s been reported citywide.
“They come in every day, sometimes twice a day, with laundry bags and just load up on stuff,” one store employee told The Post, as two others nodded in agreement.
“They take whatever they want and we can’t do anything about it. It’s why the store is closing. They can’t afford to keep it open.”
