Our Circle K Convenience Store, located in Laveen, AZ, cross-streets 51st Ave and Baseline Rd., needs to have security on staff 24 hours a day or move towards an immediate closure.
There is constant loitering, stealing, harassment, fights, and in one instant a murder committed in the store. This is not a safe place for women, men, teenagers, or young children in the community trying to get gas or purchase a quick snack. On any given day, at any hour, there is panhandling in front of the store, and attendants do nothing about it.
I am writing this petition as a concerned father and member of this community. If Circle K does not intend to provide the adequate amount of security needed to for the patrons of our community, then we would like the store removed from our city.
It should not be a hassle or a detrimental experience to purchase gas or a piece of candy. I hope the community stands with the reshaping and branding of this store to demonstrate who we are and what we expect in our city.
