Target is banning returns on all items for the next three weeks as a measure of caution against the novel coronavirus, the company announced on its website.
Any returns that expire during the period between March 26 and April 16 will be honored for three weeks after this holding period.
“We’ll make all these changes easy for guests with clear signs throughout the store,” Target chairman and CEO Brian Cornell said in a statement shared on the Target website. “Our team members will be there to assist and answer any questions. And as we’ve been doing for weeks, we’ll keep evaluating other options.”
Target is also suspending the use of reusable bags at checkout, instead opting for paper or plastic bags, which will be distributed to shoppers with no additional fee for the time being.
