Businesses damaged in Minneapolis, St. Paul after riots

A look at Twin Cities businesses hit hard since Wednesday by looting and rioting following the Memorial Day death of George Floyd


As of Sunday, at least 255 businesses across the Twin Cities had been vandalized, looted or had doors and windows smashed. Some have been reduced to rubble, destroyed completely by fire. Others have reported extensive water damage or severe fire damage.

While this is an incomplete list, businesses along a 5-mile stretch of Lake Street in Minneapolis and a 1-mile stretch of University Avenue in St. Paul's Midway area have experienced some of the heaviest damage, especially those nearest Minneapolis' Third and Fifth police precincts. As protests spread across the metro, many larger companies with multiple locations have temporarily or indefinitely closed, including several CVS and 24 Target locations. We will continue to update as we learn more.
