From Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., glass companies in cities throughout the U.S. are having to replace broken glass at damaged businesses after weekend protests over the death of George Floyd, who died in police custody in Minneapolis last week.
Brent Park, owner of the Park Place Gourmet deli in Washington, D.C., told DCist that he estimated that repairs to his business will cost over $10,000. However, the first glass company he called was too busy fixing other buildings in the area to assist him. At Elmwood Village in Buffalo, N.Y., business owners are asking for donations to pay to replace broken windows.
