On Saturday, Mildblend got robbed by about 20 teenagers that took over 3,000 dollars worth of merchandise. Please call the Chicago Police Department at 312-744-8290, police report number HV-404817 if you have any information.
Mildblend is owned by the parents of a dear friend of mine, and I seriously can't believe this happened. They are one of the nicest families I know. During the school year when I was organizing a fashion seminar, the owners of Mildblend (her parents) reached out to me to see if they could help in anyway. For weeks I had been scrambling and sending emails to people I didn't even know trying to see if they could speak to the students. And I can't even explain how refreshing and nice it was to have someone offer to help. They pulled out every trick to entertain the group of 30 students like opening the store early for us, and even giving the students purchasing clothing discounts. These are good people.
If you know anyone in this video called the Chicago Police Department at 312-744-8290, police report number HV-404817. If you're scared that you're call will be traced back to you, tell the police you would like to stay anonymous and you will. I don't care if it's your best friend in the video, call the police. And if it is your best friend, you need a new best friend.
Again, call the Chicago Police Department at 312-744-8290, police report number HV-404817.
Also, this story has made national news, so yeah, it's a big fucking deal.
