In-N-Out Now Makes Unexpected Closures Due to Crime

In-N-Out now makes unexpected closures due to crime, sparking safety concerns for workers and customers, sources report.

The iconic burger joint, which has 400 locations, is being forced to close doors over rising crime.

In-N-Out announced that it will be leaving Oakland, California, in two months on March 24.

After over 18 years at the location, the business has suffered from so much crime that despite its profitability, the chain is axing the store, reports The-Sun.

“We have made the decision to close our In-N-Out Burger location in Oakland, California, due to ongoing issues with crime,” Denny Warnick, Chief Operating Officer said in a statement.

“Despite taking repeated steps to create safer conditions, our Customers and Associates are regularly victimized by car break-ins, property damage, theft, and armed robberies.”

One employee told the San Francisco Chronicle of the time that her vehicle was ransacked while she was at work.

“They broke the windows on both passenger sides,” Juliana Velazquez told the outlet.

Even while speaking to reporters, a car pulled into a spot that was covered with shattered glass from another break-in.

However, those in charge of security and law enforcement in East Oakland will not be shocked by the news.

Oakland Police told SFGATE of the increased crime levels in the area with 271 vehicle burglaries at a nearby gas station last year as well as 15 robberies and five stolen vehicles.

The In-N-Out location is around two miles away from the Oakland International Airport and rental car companies warn users to keep an eye on their belongings and to fill up at gas stations away from the area.

“Oakland is lawless,” said a user on Facebook.

“This whole plaza feels like a walk on the wild side,” they added.

A massive furniture company now lays off 1,650 employees, which represent approximately 13% of its global workforce.

Wayfair has laid off about 1,650 employees, the company said Friday.

The online home decor retailer said the cuts represent about 19% of its corporate team and 13% of its global workforce.

The move is expected to give the company more than $280 million in annualized cost savings.

About $150 million of that will come from cash compensation savings.

However, the restructuring will likely cost Wayfair approximately $70 million to $80 million in severance and benefits costs, most of which are anticipated to be incurred in the first quarter, reports RetailDive.

While CEO Niraj Shah in an open letter to employees pointed to “many things at the company that are going well,” including gaining share with customers and making progress to operate more efficiently, the retailer has faced challenges.

The company “went overboard” with hiring during the height of the pandemic, when the retailer’s annualized sales doubled to $18 billion from $9 billion as people spent more on their homes, Shah said.

This is Wayfair’s third round of restructuring since the summer of 2022.

The company laid off 870 employees in August of that year.

Last January, a whopping 1,750 people were also let go.

This time, Shah said they decided to err on the side of having too few people versus too many.

“Each time we used our best judgment, identified the cost target we needed to hit, and believed we were resizing to the right point,” Shah said Friday.

“In many ways, having too many great people is worse than having too few.

With too few, you get a lot done quickly, but you may not get everything done that you want.

But having too many causes inefficiency, coordination costs, and investments in lower-return activities.

That is what we have been experiencing and what we need to end.”
