On Sunday May 31st, amidst the riots happening in Santa Monica, our beloved pharmacy was looted and ransacked starting at 2pm. Looters broke the picture window next to the door, destroying all they could get their hands on, as they were looking for hard drugs, money and computer equipment.
As the day progressed, streams of looters came in and out of our pharmacy carrying their “spoils”. They continued to break a few more windows, pushed over the probiotic refrigerator, broke doors, ripped open cabinets that were locked, stole computers, cash drawers and the like.
During this crisis, a few or our staff members along with a few loyal customers stood outside our door, trying to keep out more looters. In addition, Steve Litvak was jumped by 3 men and beaten while he was trying to keep more looters from entering the store. Thank GOD he is ok! Thank you all for your heroism!
Although inside our pharmacy is a disaster with smashed glass shards, damaged products, ruined carpets, pieces of shelving units thrown everywhere and even products thrown in the bushes outside, we are resilient!
We love serving our community because we consider our customers as part of our family. It is important to us that we get up and running as soon as we are able. We are doing our best to do this in a timely manner.
We thank you for all your support and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
