An estimated 80-strong mob in 25 cars blocked the street and carried out an organized flash looting of a Nordstrom in Walnut Creek on Saturday night.

From KGO, "3 arrested, firearm recovered from Walnut Creek Nordstrom store looting involving 80 people: Police":
The incident was first reported at 8:46 p.m. while the store was still open, according to police.

A manager at a nearby restaurant says his stunned customers just watched as the thieves grabbed merchandise, loaded it in waiting cars and drove off.

That manager described the chaos.

"We probably saw 50 to 80 people in ski masks crowbars a bunch of weapons. They were looting the Nordstrom's right here. And I thought they were going to start beating cars. I had to start locking doors lock the front door lock the back door," PF Chang's manager Brett Barrette said.
"Like so many of you, we have been deeply saddened and angered by recent events in our country," Pete and Erik Nordstrom said in a statement on May 30, 2020 endorsing the Black Lives Matter movement amidst widespread rioting. "The senseless deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and too many others reflect the deeply ingrained racial prejudice and injustice that still exists in our communities today."

"We've long believed we are all made better by the diversity that exists within our communities. Our values are centered on the notion of creating a place where every customer and employee is welcome, respected, appreciated and able to be themselves," they continued.

"We need change. As a company, we know we have the opportunity to make things better, which is why over the past several years we've amplified our efforts when it comes to diversity, inclusion and belonging at Nordstrom. It begins not only by speaking out, but by listening. Listening to our employees, customers and neighbors as they share what it's like to be a person of color in our country today. It's working to ensure our teams and leaders represent the diversity we seek. It's providing each and every customer who walks in our door the service and experience they expect and deserve to receive at Nordstrom."

"Our employees, particularly through our employee resource groups, are critical voices as we continue to have conversations about these important topics. Our 'Courageous Conversation' forums set up by our Black Employee Network have made a big impact on both of us. These conversations aren't easy, but they've never been more important. We're grateful for the courage of our employees as they share their stories. We are proud to stand with them. We welcome your feedback as we work to make meaningful change together."

Remember folks, property can be rebuilt!
