The Target store at the Metreon in San Francisco is not closing, the company said.

“The Mission Street store is not closing. That was incorrectly reported and we have followed up on that,” a Target spokesperson said in an email.

A report by a conservative news outlet that Target is planning to shutter a prominent San Francisco store due to unchecked shoplifting is false, the company said Friday.

A spokesperson for Target told SFGATE Friday that the branch located in the downtown shopping center will not be closing down, despite a report from the California Globe, a self-proclaimed “independent” publication. The story was widely circulated on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit as evidence of unfettered theft becoming an epidemic in San Francisco, and shared by prominent Fox News contributor Leo Terrell and a host of other conservatives.

The issue has reached national headlines, following a viral video shared by KGO reporter Lyanne Melendez and the recent closures of multiple Walgreens locations in the city, due to what the company says is mass shoplifting. However, follow-ups from SFGATE, the San Francisco Chronicle and other outlets have found that retail theft may not be the sole issue for those stores shutting down. (SFGATE and the Chronicle are both owned by Hearst but operate independently of one another.)

“The Metreon store is not closing,” the spokesperson told SFGATE.

Retail theft has, indeed, proven to be a serious issue in San Francisco, and Target has had its hours affected due to an uptick in theft.
