Stores across country board up fearing election-related chaos
Businesses nationwide are fortifying themselves for Election Day riots.
Shops in San Francisco, Beverly Hills, Washington, DC, Atlantic City, Chicago, Boston, Indianapolis and Denver have already boarded up their storefronts ahead of Tuesday’s US presidential election.
In recent days, many businesses in New York City boarded up to gird against potential civil unrest.
Businesses across the country were not taking any chances following the nationwide protests and widespread looting that occurred following the May 25 police-custody death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
