What Stores/Businesses In Contra Costa County Will Close Next Due To Crime?


As we previously reported, the Antioch Target closed late last year due to theft and other crime.

This is just one of many stores and businesses that have closed throughout the Bay Area due to crime.

QUESTION: What store(s) do you think will be the next to close, and what city in Contra Costa County do you think will be hit the hardest with closures?

Antioch Target didn’t close though. The Target in Pittsburg closed.

JC1911 February 22, 2024 - 10:30 AM - 10:30 AM will be the next to shut down due to crime.

don’t understand the joke here?

Atticus Thraxx February 22, 2024 - 9:15 PM - 9:15 PM

They come for the Mayor, I owe him a few, I got his back. 🙂

American Citizen February 22, 2024 - 10:55 AM - 10:55 AM

Any of those stores that support those woke politicians should close. You get what you vote for.

Sofia February 22, 2024 - 2:30 PM - 2:30 PM

Bad reporting. The Target 🎯 store that closed was in Pittsburg

Dr. Jellyfinger February 26, 2024 - 5:33 PM - 5:33 PM

Pittsburg had a Target store?
Whose dumb idea was that?

Warm Kitty February 22, 2024 - 10:59 AM - 10:59 AM

Everything in El Sobrante, Richmond, Pinole, you know places in West County lol

Beto February 23, 2024 - 12:50 PM - 12:50 PM

Big 5 next to Concord BART. The feral people clean them out routinely.

Real shame as that’s one of the few places to get decently priced shoes anymore.

West side of Auto Center Drive is Pittsburg city limit.
VERY interesting story as to why antioch missed out on all that sales tax revenue.
Which stores will close,
Ones that depend on high levels of disposable income.
Store layout that is conducive to theft.
Stores lacking enough employees to cover a large merchandise area.
Then there is Costco, single entry and exit points,
employees covering emergency exits on parking lot side.
Their grab-n-run theft is very low.
Efficiently run stores equals a 227% increase in stock price since October 2018.

Ed February 23, 2024 - 2:14 PM - 2:14 PM

We can thank mayor Verne Roberts for that fiasco.

ON DA February 22, 2024 - 11:50 AM - 11:50 AM

I don’t think you can classify these areas as cities anymore. Only bub burbs.

Mike McDermott February 22, 2024 - 12:02 PM - 12:02 PM

We will lose a CVS or a Walgreens. Not sure which one. Retail theft is out of control.

OverWhelmed February 22, 2024 - 12:27 PM - 12:27 PM

The Joanns in the same shopping center closed for the same reason. Soft on crime. Sad that all those people are out of a Job and pay the consequences for those that do the crime.

domo February 22, 2024 - 12:56 PM - 12:56 PM

Targets Antioch and PH, and if there’s any left in Richmond, El Sobrante, El Cerrito… Safeway on Clayton Rd near Concord BART, Home Dept in Pittsburg, maybe Loews in Concord

Concord Guy February 22, 2024 - 1:24 PM - 1:24 PM

The CVS on Clayton Road across the street from the Concord BART Station. Unsavory people there 24/7.

EclecticGuy February 23, 2024 - 11:00 AM - 11:00 AM

That CVS lost my business. Everything behind glass now. To much a bother to go in there now.

BOB February 22, 2024 - 1:29 PM - 1:29 PM

I agree with BOB, I only go to the Big5 when I need cheap shoes.

nytemuvr February 22, 2024 - 4:39 PM - 4:39 PM

@BOB(BOB?)….You might want to take a quick read of this article, maybe a visit to a professional would help….good luck.

Bob February 22, 2024 - 5:43 PM - 5:43 PM

There are two of us

nytemuvr February 23, 2024 - 12:34 AM - 12:34 AM

@BOB….Ok, if you say so.

Bob February 23, 2024 - 2:42 PM - 2:42 PM

We do

WC---Creeker February 22, 2024 - 1:51 PM - 1:51 PM

Some say more big retail and drug stores will close because of trump’s policies and bidenomics is working. LOL

Dr. Jellyfinger February 22, 2024 - 6:44 PM - 6:44 PM

Some are stupid.

David February 23, 2024 - 6:45 AM - 6:45 AM

🤣🤣🤣 Trump REALLY. Social media allows the most ignorant to post their ridiculous views, as I guess you can lead a horse to water, and you can lead people to the truth, and let them live in the reality of it, but still can’t force them to think

Fed Up February 23, 2024 - 9:13 AM - 9:13 AM

I guess you did not get the sarcasm.

George February 22, 2024 - 3:57 PM - 3:57 PM

If the closures were based off of the number of “Reported” shoplifting cases to the police then Dick’s Sporting Goods in Pleasant Hill would be at the top, BUT there are some stores that don’t even bother calling the police anymore.

Cautiously Informed February 22, 2024 - 4:42 PM - 4:42 PM

They close due to crime, and due to China Joes(Bindeomics) crushing historically high and destructive inflation.

The Fearless Spectator February 22, 2024 - 5:39 PM - 5:39 PM

Any of the “high end” retail stores will be next. Walnut Creek will be hit the hardest as it used to be a shopping destination and now it’s a thievery destination. The fact that paying customers are already avoiding it will accelerate the process. Parking garages compound the mugging risk.

Jeff (the other one) February 22, 2024 - 7:06 PM - 7:06 PM

I hate/have to admit, I have not paid much attention to the stores dealing with theft in this county, just went with the understanding just about all of them are. Not a rosy view, brought on by my general thought of the sad direction this state has been going. I guess I am waiting for Lowe’s to give up it’s Arnold location, kind of out of the way, rarely have I seen it “crowded,” and (mostly) I was there when someone walked, then ran out with a box of tools ($2-300). Unfortunately, I do not see any remedy coming around, in fact, I am even more concerned with the number of illegal aliens who are new inhabitants.

Atticus Thraxx February 22, 2024 - 7:40 PM - 7:40 PM

I don’t know. But I call my bank from the parking lot to ask if there’s a robbery occurring and should I come back another day. They’re probably getting tired of that.

SamE February 23, 2024 - 5:08 AM - 5:08 AM

Bail bonds! Or am I behind the times and did we already abandon the bail system?

Norcal February 23, 2024 - 6:11 AM - 6:11 AM

Most will close eradicating renting buildings .
Homes will be bought up by firms and banks
As the money flow stops worldwide

your neighbor the immigrant February 23, 2024 - 6:53 AM - 6:53 AM

The Government is here to defend the rights of the criminals and not the rights of the tax payer. Retail theft is out of control and there is no punishment for doing so. Police can not do their job either, because they are afraid to face concecounses by doing so. Can you imagine what it will be like in 10, 20 years from now? Anyways I think kohl’s in PH could be one of the places to shut down due to safety for all.

Moogooguypan February 23, 2024 - 11:36 AM - 11:36 AM

Not looking forward to a time when these gangs run through our grocery store and steal our food, en mass. The thought of paying and walking out the store just to get held up for the food is another overwhelming possibility.

PO'd February 23, 2024 - 12:33 PM - 12:33 PM

I would think Dick’s in PH. How much more will they take from self-entitled cretins before
moving on. Anywhere location close to a freeway is at risk.

Beanzy February 23, 2024 - 1:21 PM - 1:21 PM

That’s too bad. I enjoyed shopping there. But now I get most of my stuff online

Keath February 25, 2024 - 4:04 PM - 4:04 PM

We need stronger police force

Going blind February 26, 2024 - 10:08 AM - 10:08 AM

Was at the Dicks Sporting in Pleasant Hill paying when I heard store alarms. Young girl had a car waiting for her in front, said she took $1500 worth! Cops never showed up. Hate that my child has to see all this on a simple family outing
