Target's interim CEO John Mulligan sent out a note to the retailer's employees to address the issue of its policy on the "open carry" of firearms in stores, according to the company's blog Abullseyeview.com.
"[T]here has been a debate about whether guests in communities that permit 'open carry' should be allowed to bring firearms into Target stores. Our approach has always been to follow local laws, and of course, we will continue to do so. " he wrote. "[S]tarting today we will also respectfully request that guests not bring firearms to Target—even in communities where it is permitted by law."
Individual states allow residents to carry concealed handguns with varying restrictions and permit requirements.
Mulligan said in the note that bringing firearms to Target "creates an environment that is at odds with the family-friendly shopping and work experience we strive to create."
Target's shares were higher in early trading Wednesday. (Click here for the latest quote.)
