Vancouver’s Nordstrom Is Boarding Up Its Stores As A Precaution To Riots

Vancouver’s Nordstrom is temporarily closing and boarding up its stores as a precaution, after many U.S. stores saw looting during the riots.

Vancouverites are planning to protest again downtown, this Friday. Although the first Vancouver protest was peaceful, a few Nordstrom locations were broken into during the Seattle and L.A. riots.

Several Toronto stores are boarding their windows up as well, in anticipation of a rumoured riot, which never happened.

Toronto had held a protest Saturday, with about 4,000 people in attendance. However, that remained peaceful as well.

Many Vancouver stores had originally closed and boarded up their locations mid-March, due to the pandemic.

They are beginning to reopen, as B.C. eases its quarantine restrictions.
