Local Albuquerque business forced to close due to ongoing break-ins.

Uptown Albuquerque business owner Leticia Leyba has announced that she will be closing Groove Boutique next month after a year of dealing with theft and attempted burglaries. Despite efforts to protect the business, including hiring private security and obtaining a concealed carry permit, the store was targeted again last week with damage left to the front door.

Leyba expressed her frustration with local leadership and the lack of progress on crime in Uptown. She stated on Instagram that it was not enough to keep the business safe from further incidents. The owner has decided to move her business online following the closure of the physical store, with the last day to shop in-store being on July 6th.

Despite the challenges faced by Groove Boutique, Leyba remains optimistic about the future of the business. She stated, “This is our community, and this sucks for me a lot. Because I didn’t think this was how this was gonna end. But it’s gonna be OK. Groove’s gonna still flourish no matter what.”
