Updated at 5 p.m. PT on Nov. 3: 
We were saddened to learn of the passing of a young man and the injury of two others as a result of gun violence at our store on North Broadway in Chicago this past Thursday. 

We will reopen the store tomorrow (Saturday), and continue to provide support to our partners (employees) during this difficult time.  

We are proud of our long history in Chicago and our efforts to make both economic and social impact in its communities, and we are grateful to local law enforcement for the partnership in their investigation of this terrible situation.
