“I looked in the door and I could tell things were already missing,” she said Wednesday. “And when I walked in so much was gone.”

Hemler estimates $50,000 worth of merchandise was stolen from the store overnight.

When Hemp Shak owner Katy Hemler came to her San Luis Obispo store Monday morning, she knew something was wrong.

“I looked in the door and I could tell things were already missing,” she said Wednesday. “And when I walked in so much was gone.”

Hemler estimates $50,000 worth of merchandise was stolen from the store overnight.

Part of downtown San Luis Obispo for 25 years, Hemp Shak sells eco-friendly clothing, locally made CBD (cannabidiol) products, local art, records, and jewelry.

Hemler says the business has been struggling to push through amid economic problems from the coronavirus pandemic. Because of that, she’s had to choose what to pay for.

“I wasn’t able to pay my insurance,” she said. “So when I walked through the door (Monday morning), I knew that… it was going to be hard.”
