Denny’s Closes Oakland Location Over Rising Crime

Denny’s shut down its restaurant in Oakland Wednesday, joining the plethora of businesses that have closed in the area due to rising crime.

The Denny’s permanently shut down at 1:00 p.m. following a crime surge in California, Fox2 KTVU reported. Signage left on the door of the restaurant, which had a reputation for being “always open,” cited safety concerns as the reason for its closure, according to the outlet.

“Closing a restaurant is never an easy decision or one taken lightly,” the statement on the sign read. “However, the safety and well-being of our Denny’s team members and valued guests is our top priority.”
