Macy’s Boards Up Flagship NYC Store Ahead Of Election

The New York Daily News reports:

Macy’s is preparing for the mayhem on 34th Street. Workers on Friday were boarding the windows of the iconic flagship store in preparation of possible unrest in the days before New York and the nation cast ballots for America’s next president.

NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea acknowledged that business owners have expressed concerns about lawlessness in the election aftermath.

“We’re not telling people to board up their stores, but we’re getting those questions from people,” Shea told Good Day New York on Friday. “And we’re not taking a stance. They can take any precautions they want. We’re not recommending people to board up their stores.”
