Convenience — not size — matters at the newly opened Glassell Park Target

Nineteen Target stores in Los Angeles County and three in Orange County were closed today because of violence associated with the protests tied to the in-custody death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The Target store in the Beverly Grove shopping center was looted Saturday, a day after its store at Seventh and Figueroa streets in downtown Los Angeles was hit by looters.

The company's stores in Glassell Park and at the Eagle Rock Plaza remain open but maybe closing early, according to one employee.

Target officials said they anticipate most of the closures will be temporary. Employees 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.
