“Restore law and order”: Portland hat store makes 3 break-ins in less than 2 months
By web staff
Portland, Oregon (KPTV) – A hat store in northeast Portland is cleaning up after someone broke in for the third time in less than two months.
FOX 12 spoke with the co-owner of Flipside Hats. She said that on Christmas Day two different people broke in. In total, she said they fled with about $ 35,000 in goods.
This is not the first time that this has happened. Just two days after opening their new location last month, someone crashed a car into their store. She calls on local leaders to mobilize and change things.
“I think the main message is to get the City of Portland to restore law and order in a peaceful manner,” said co-owner Kori Giudici. “We watch the city go downhill in front of our eyes and the world is watching. We’ve had so much press across the country and people are saying, “Portland isn’t what it used to be. “
The co-owner said she started Flipside Hats 20 years ago while studying medicine. She said they used environmentally friendly materials to make each hat.
While she said she was visibly upset, she says she is doing her best to move forward.
“It’s already a difficult situation and if I play the victim in there, then I am the victim in there,” Giudici said. “It will never help us grow and get out of it. We just have to put one foot in front of the other and do what we do best.
