An Auckland business owner is closing the store she’s run for nearly 20 years, Newshub reports, after being ram-raided twice in two months. Bharti Patel owns and operates Jewellers on Queen in Onehunga. Patel told Newshub on Monday she’s being forced into early retirement, adding that offenders aren’t facing proper consequences because they are often young children. She said it’s disappointing to be forced to close her business because she feels unsafe.
