  • Target's Minneapolis store will offer more spices to appeal to Black residents nearby.
  • The store, damaged during the summer's nationwide unrest over police brutality, reopened on November 10.
  • Ahead of reopening, Target executives met with Black residents, employees, and community organizers to "ask what they wanted to see in the reconstructed store," Bloomberg reported.
  • Community-suggested updates include adding more spice varieties, bringing the pharmacy to the front of the store to aid elderly customers, and putting lighting at a nearby rail station to increase safety, according to Bloomberg.
  • Looters emptied shelves and smashed windows on the Minneapolis Target store in May.
