Major retailers like Macy's  (M) - Get Report and  (CVS) - Get Report, have closed their stores and boarded up their windows in anticipation of riots and potential protests in New York City on Election Night.

After a year marked by tumultuous times and upheaval, retailers around the country are taking sweeping measures — and spending millions — to protect their stores during a high-stakes presidential election.

TheStreet heads down to the center of New York City to get a first-hand look at the plywood being put on storefronts and the security measures being taken.

Other retailers that have also jumped on the bandwagon to protect their real estate are AT&T  (T) - Get Report, Foot Locker  (FL) - Get Report, Disney  (DIS) - Get Report, and more.

No matter what the outcome of the election will be, looks like retailers aren't taking any chances.
