Target prepares for hurricane season
MINNEAPOLIS Target announced that it will serve as a destination for consumers looking to prepare for hurricane season during National Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 23 to 29.
Target pointed to the number of services it offers including a 24-hour daily command center that monitors global events that could impact its customers and associates. The retailer also said its stores will remain open as long as possible during an emergency to help communities get the supplies they need and holds merchandise in its distribution centers in advance of hurricane season so that it can get supplies to stores as quickly as possible.
“We want our guests to know that before and after a crisis, communities can count on Target,” says Brad Brekke, VP Target assets protection.
