  要点

  沃尔玛超市表示,将继续出售枪支和弹药,但已将它们放在一个安全的房间。

  沃尔玛首席执行官道格·麦克米伦(Doug McMillon)周三说,该公司的一些商店遭到破坏和抢劫。

  在公司年度股东大会上,麦克米伦首先对弗洛伊德的去世表示悲痛,并强调公司致力于包容性。

  沃尔玛表示,由于乔治·弗洛伊德(George Floyd)之死引发的抗议活动在美国各地持续,在某些情况下,导致了抢劫,沃尔玛已从部分门店的销售楼层撤走了枪支和弹药。

  这家大卖场周三表示,这些商品仍然可以购买,但现在存放在一个安全的房间里。

  该公司在一份声明中说:“作为一家负责任的猎枪和运动枪支销售商,出于充分的谨慎,我们暂时将一些商店的枪支和弹药撤出了销售现场。”。

  一位公司发言人拒绝透露有多少家商店将其从销售楼层撤下,以及沃尔玛是否已将其他商品转移到安全地点。

  《商业内幕》周三早些时候报道了这一情况。

  沃尔玛在美国有4700多家分店,在主要城市的一些分店不携带枪支。

  在从纽约到洛杉矶的主要城市,数十万人聚集在一起抗议弗洛伊德的死亡,一名手无寸铁的黑人男子在明尼阿波利斯的一名警察将他按在地上并跪在他的脖子上时挣扎着呼吸。在某些情况下,抗议活动导致了与警察的冲突、店面受损和抢劫。本周,许多市长作出回应,在全市范围内实行宵禁。一些零售商,从便利店到奢侈品零售商,已经清理了他们商店的碎玻璃或用木板封住的窗户。

  在曼哈顿的高端购物区,香奈儿(Chanel)和Coach商店遭到抢劫,一家丝芙兰(Sephora)商店的橱窗被砸碎。Nordstrom在西雅图的旗舰店和Neiman Marcus在达拉斯的旗舰店遭到破坏。塔吉特公司发言人托马斯(Joshua Thomas)说,该公司200多家门店周末关闭或调整了营业时间。在遭受重大损失后,该公司的六家商店已经关闭,直到另行通知——包括将重建的弗洛伊德死亡地点附近的明尼阿波利斯一家商店。

  沃尔玛首席执行官道格•麦克米伦(Doug McMillon)周三在公司年度股东大会上说,沃尔玛的一些门店也遭到了损坏。

  他说:“我们有一些商店的库存损失和一些实物损坏,但占总数的百分比并不是很多。”。

  他没有说商店的数量,也没有描述损坏的程度。

  他说:“我们一直非常积极,因为这涉及到关闭商店,提前关闭商店,这是我们将在危机中继续做的事情。”。“我们只关注员工和客户的安全,然后根据需要进行恢复。”

  麦克米伦在会议上开始了他的讲话,这次会议实际上是召开的,他对弗洛伊德的去世表示悲伤,并强调了公司对包容性的承诺。

  他说:“乔治·弗洛伊德的遇害是悲惨、痛苦和不可接受的。“重要的是,我们都要明白,作为一个国家,我们的问题远不止一次可怕的事件。我们感受到的痛苦提醒我们需要互相支持和团结起来。除非我们作为一个国家面对并解决这些严峻的现实,否则我们永远无法做到最好。”

  Walmart removes firearms from sales floor in some stores as protests continue across U.S.

  KEY POINTS

  Walmart said it will continue to sell firearms and ammunition, but has put them in a secure room.

  The retailer’s CEO, Doug McMillon, said Wednesday that some of the company’s stores have been damaged and looted.

  At the company’s annual shareholders meeting, McMillon began his remarks by expressing sadness about Floyd’s death and emphasizing the company’s commitment to inclusivity.

  Walmart said it’s removed firearms and ammunition from some of its stores’ sales floors, as protests sparked by the death of George Floyd continue across the U.S. and in some cases, have led to looting.

  The big-box retailer said Wednesday that the items are still available for purchase, but are now kept in a secure room.

  “As a responsible seller of hunting and sporting firearms, we have temporarily removed firearms and ammunition from the sales floor in some stores out of an abundance of caution,” the company said in a statement.

  A company spokesperson declined to say how many stores had pulled them from sales floors and if Walmart has moved other items to secure locations.

  Business Insider reported the development earlier Wednesday.

  Walmart has more than 4,700 stores across the U.S. Some of its stores in major cities do not carry firearms.

  In major cities from New York to Los Angeles, hundreds of thousands of people have gathered to protest the death of Floyd, an unarmed black man who struggled to breathe as a Minneapolis police officer pinned him to the ground and knelt on his neck. In some cases, protests have led to clashes with police, damage to storefronts and looting. Many mayors have responded this week by setting citywide curfews. Some retailers, from convenience stores to luxury retailers, have swept up shattered glass or boarded up windows of their stores.

  In high-end shopping districts in Manhattan, Chanel and Coach stores were looted and windows of a Sephora store were smashed. Nordstrom’s flagship store in Seattle and Neiman Marcus’ flagship store in Dallas were vandalized. More than 200 of Target’s stores were closed or had adjusted hours over the weekend, company spokesman Joshua Thomas said. Six of its stores have been closed until further notice after sustaining major damage — including a Minneapolis store near the site of Floyd’s death that will be rebuilt.

  Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said during the company’s annual shareholders meeting Wednesday that some of its stores have been damaged, too.

  “We’ve had some stores where we’ve had inventory lost and some physical damage, but it’s not very many stores as a percent of total,” he said.

  He didn’t say the number of stores or describe the extent of the damage.

  “We’ve been pretty aggressive as it relates to closing stores, closing stores early and that’s what we’ll continue to do through the crisis,” he said. “We’ll just focus on associate and customer safety and then recover as needed beyond that.”

  McMillon began his remarks at the meeting, which was held virtually, by expressing sadness about Floyd’s death and emphasizing the company’s commitment to inclusivity.

  “The killing of George Floyd is tragic, painful and unacceptable,” he said. “It’s important that we all understand that our problems as a nation run much deeper than one horrible event. The pain we’re feeling reminds us of the need to support each another and come together. Until we as a nation confront and address these hard realities, we will never achieve the best of what we can be.”
