From Tiffany To Target, Stores Are Boarding Up Windows In Case Of Election Unrest

Retailers across the country are stepping up security measures to try to head off any damages to their stores during election-related protests in the coming days. Tiffany, Saks Fifth Avenue, CVS, Target and Macy’s are among the chains that are boarding up some of their stores’ windows in preparation. “While we intend to remain open where possible, out of an abundance of caution the windows of select stores in key cities will be boarded in anticipation of potential election-related activity,” said Nathan Strauss, spokesperson for Tiffany.

Retailers are hoping to prevent this from happening again. Read more at CNN Business.
