BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Target announces store closures, citing safety concerns


Target Corp. announced Tuesday that it is closing nine stores across four states, effective Oct. 21, due to “theft and organized retail crime … threatening the safety of our team and guests.”

Workplace violence in the retail sector has been an ongoing issue for companies.

The Minneapolis-based company said in a statement that “unsustainable business performance” at the stores helped justify the closures despite investment strategies to prevent retail crime, including adding more security personnel, using third-party guard services, and implementing “theft-deterrent tools.”

Target is closing three stores each in the Portland, Oregon, and San Francisco-Oakland markets; two in Seattle; and one in New York.
