Looting of Retail Takes Over L.A.’s George Floyd Protests where Alexander McQueen, Marc Jacobs and Gucci were all early targets of looters, but many more were hit during a night of protesting and unrest.
Fears among retailers and brands that protests in Los Angeles over the death of George Floyd would devolve into looting have been realized in many areas.
On Saturday evening, around 6 p.m., an Alexander McQueen store on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills was broken into and looted, according to live video aired by a local CBS station. Dozens of mainly young men streamed into the McQueen store after the glass of its doorway was broken. A large display window was tagged with “Make America Pay.” The store had not been boarded up like most of its neighbors had earlier in the day. Some that entered the store ran out with handfuls of merchandise and handbags.
