To Our Valued Associates and Customers:
The tragedies that so many families across our country have experienced for many years and are experiencing right now is unacceptable. The senseless killing of George Floyd. Ahmaud Arbery. Breonna Taylor. And so many more – too many more across our country – has shaken us to our core. We share in our feelings of sadness, fear and outrage.
