Target Corporation has decided to shutter 30 Twin Cities-area stores "until further notice," with the Star Tribune reporting that many will be closed until Saturday. 

The decision comes a day after the threat of riots and looting prompted the Minneapolis-based company to unexpectedly close 24 stores in the metro, with 18 of the 24 reopening Friday. 

But those that opened back up were told to close as soon as possible Friday afternoon, once again related to the threat of looting and rioting resuming in the wake of civil rights protests related to the death of 46-year-old George Floyd. 

Here's the list of Target locations that will close until further notice. 

Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter for Floyd's death.
