Video found on the web. A black woman living in Chicago does a walkthrough of a Jewel-Osco grocery store that was badly looted during the May 2020 riots following the death of George Floyd.
This video was posted to YouTube on June 15, 2020, which massively predates the Mid April 2023 Chicago chaos. It’s important to know that the text overlay of the video notes that the store is Wal-Mart, while the description and title on the YouTube page notes the store as Jewel-Osco. We originally reported that there was no way to definitively know what store this was, but it does seem to be a Jewel-Osco. At the 2:00 time-code, you can see some Jewel Osco labeled food items in bags. The original video is embedded below. The archived copy is available in the evidence links (both of the video, as well as a pdf copy of the page (sans video)).
