Albertson's Closes Store In San Diego Food Desert

I moved to this neighborhood recently and went at about 8PM to pick up some groceries. I saw young people shoplifting. When I left the store with my groceries, I was hassled in the parking lot. Since then, I have picked another store. It's too bad Albertsons is leaving, but I'm not surprised. I bet if we had access to all the data that loss due to shoplifting was a big part of what kept the store from being profitable. This, in spite of the fact that the store is paying for security guards. As people think of a solution or new tenants or whatever, this will have to be factored in.

Do you think it would be a good idea for the city to compensate any grocer for this loss? If you were going to open a grocery, how would you deal with it?
