Six stores will be closed in total, while many others will be running under adjusted hours. "We adjusted hours or closed more than 200 stores over the weekend," a Target spokesperson told USA TODAY. 

The six closed stores are as follows:

- Broadway Oakland, CA
- Buckhead South Atlanta, GA
- South Loop Chicago, IL
- Lake Street Minneapolis, MN 
- Uptown Minneapolis, MN
- Washington Square W Philadelphia, PA

CEO Brian Cornell released a statement on Friday, explaining the store's position on the protests and how the company is moving forward: "The safety of our team and guests is our top priority. We recognize the important role we play in helping our communities shop for the food, medicine and other essentials they need. We apologize for the inconvenience and will reopen our stores on their normally scheduled hours as soon as it is safe to do so.

"Our store and HR teams are working with all of our displaced team members, including the more than 200 team members from our Lake Street store in Minneapolis," Cornell continued. "We will make sure they have their full pay and benefits in the coming weeks, as well as access to other resources and opportunities within Target."
