San Francisco Walgreens vandalized with graffiti

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — A San Francisco Walgreens was vandalized and the perimeter of the building was spray painted.

Graffiti all around a Walgreens on Point Lobos Avenue in San Francisco.

Most of it says “Union free prices!!!” There’s some that says “Slave labor for your convenience.”

“Oh I didn’t see that!” one shopper said.

Surprisingly, most shoppers I spoke with didn’t even notice the vandalism that surrounds the entire building.

“I didn’t even notice it until you mentioned it,” one shopper said.

Jane Barbone is a little confused by the message.

“Yeah, I have no idea what it’s about,” Barbone said. “I guess I should go look it up to be more informed.”

We tried to talk with the manager at Walgreens who didn’t have a comment. In fact he hadn’t noticed the graffiti either.

He told us their walls always get vandalized and they quickly paint over it.

An employee also told us they are part of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 648 which represents grocery, drug, bakery and candy workers.

Jane Barbone says whatever the message is, it’s not getting across at least not to her.

“There’s so much tagging that goes on between the Muni and if you go down the great plays, I don’t think people notice it that much,” Barbone said.

She adds that if they did, grammar is key.

“I think if you’re going to try and make a point you should probably spell the words correctly,” Barbone said.

“I don’t like graffiti, you have to demonstrate your purpose in a better way rather than doing these things on the wall, could be my house, could be any business you have to express your opinion in a more civilized way,” one shopper said.

We did contact the union representing the employees here to see if there’s any type of negotiations happening right now but since it’s Sunday all we got was a voicemail.
