Fil-Am sneaker store owner talks about painful experience with looters

SACRAMENTO, CA — This is his store, Kicx Unlimited: being raided by looters this past Saturday in Sacramento.

He, along with his partners, had been building up Kicx for the past five years and he literally watched all his hard work get destroyed right in front of him.

“It was heartbreaking. We couldn’t do anything. There were just too many of them,” said Elvin Reyes.

Kicx Unlimited is a consignment store, specializing in some of the most sought after sneakers and streetwear on the market.

Air Jordan, Yeezys, and other shoes were priced in the hundreds, all the way to the tens of thousands of dollars.

Like many businesses across the state, Kicx Unlimited was eagerly anticipating to re-open their doors to the public.

“We were closed down for COVID but we did do a few online sales, nothing compared to when we were open but we were still operating. For the past two weeks, we’ve been preparing to open for June 1st and this is what happened.”

Reyes soon realized there’s some silver lining to the violence and destruction.

The morning after the incident, he was surprised to see the community of Sacramento helping clean up his store.

“Came back, I say, 9am to meet the real guys to board our shop and everything was clean. We were so amazed. We were so thankful. Everyone who offered to help us we were going to ask to help us clean but we didn’t have to do anything. Sacramento was already here. They might have come at 5am, 6am, I don’t know.”

When asked if he would like to rebuild and continue to operate Kicx Unlimited — Reyes said that he cannot give an honest answer as of now.

    Who are you going to blame, blame the Governor, Mayors, TRUMP gave them the National Guard at their own disposal. Most Democrat leaders did not use them, allowed looting so that they could blame TRUMP for the bad economy. Americans noticed what is going on, some will not open their store anymore. Social media are already spreading the rumor that the military is already deployed and wants TRUMP to declare Martial law or resign. This crisis is just temporary, It took 2 years on Muller Investigation, thru the help of the Media, people believe on the Russian Collusion, made the Democrat won the House, but it came out as a HOAX. Then impeachment came, another HOAX, he survives. TRUMP the anointed one, once he will be elected, many OBAMA staff will go to jail for Attempted COUP ETAT.
