Hillsborough Avenue in Tampa will need to be closed temporarily. The closure will continue until 6 a.m. Saturday, August 28.

As Walmart has said in similar closures, a statement read:
“As an essential business and a member of the Tampa, FL community, we understand the role we play in providing our customers with food, medicine and other essential items, especially at this time.
As you know, several areas across the country have begun seeing a renewed increase in positive COVID-19 cases, and we want to assist health officials working against the pandemic. In support of this effort, we have chosen to temporarily close our Tampa, FL location at 1720 East Hillsborough Ave. today at 2 p.m. as part of a company-initiated program. This will allow extra time for a third-party specialist to further sanitize the store and will also give our associates additional time to restock shelves and prepare the store to once again serve the community. We plan to reopen the store to customers at 6 a.m. on Aug. 28.”
