Minneapolis-based retail giant Target Corporation has closed temporarily its six stores which were looted and damaged during protests sparked across the US by the death of George Floyd.
”We are heartbroken by the death of George Floyd and the pain it is causing communities across the country,” said the company in a statement. ”The safety of our team and guests is our top priority. At this time, we are making the decision to adjust store hours or close stores temporarily.”
”Additionally, team members impacted by store closures will be paid for up to 14 days of scheduled hours during store closures, including COVID-19 premium pay. They will also be able to work at other nearby Target locations”, added in the statement.
