    NEW BRITAIN, CT (WFSB) -- The New Britain mayor is calling out her city’s Target store.

    On Tuesday, Mayor Erin Stewart took to Twitter saying a store manager told city police officers to leave the premises as they were trying to hold their annual back-to-school supply drive.

    According to Stewart, the store manager told officers to leave because "he doesn’t support the police."

    New Britain's Fire Chief Raul Ortiz even reacted to the incident on Twitter, saying "I’ll donate. That is unbelievable. Isn’t community policing and involvement what we want more of? Our NBPD has been exceptional in that aspect."

    Not long after she posted about the incident on Twitter, she followed up by saying Target’s regional manager made a personal $500 donation for supplies, and apologized for what had happened.

    She also said Target is now letting the police department go back to the store this weekend to continue its collection drive. It'll be held on Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. A bin has also been placed inside the store.


    Channel 3 has reached out to Target for a comment on Wednesday. While the company hasn't released an official statement, it says there's more to this story.

    On Wednesday, New Britain spokesman Edward Ford said "the past 24 hours we've seen a tremendous amount of support from the community for the police department's back to school drive."

    For those interested in donating, a bin has also been placed in the lobby of the police department downtown.

    At least in this town the Mayor had the PDs back. Rare sight these days, that.

    I'll be anxious to hear that "more to this story" of which they speak.

    Target manager needs to be fired. Corporate Target needs to tell all stores in no uncertain terms that such behavior will not be tolerated. Don

    You know they'd have already done that if the manager had kicked out BLM or Antifa...

    If I owned Target, I'd keep the firing a secret and let the rest of the rats in the other stores hang themselves with their shenanigans.

    This is shades of Denny's refusing to serve Secret Service agents and Starbuck's telling cops to leave because they traumatize some of their weenie customers. Don

    Fine. Next time there’s a robbery and they call the cops, let the manager get shot in the head.

    I'm curious to hear the rest of this story. Usually Shop with a Cop events are coordinated with the store well in advance because the store wants the publicity. We've run our Christmas Shop with a Cop with Meijer for years with no problems. They even do a corporate match to give the kids more money. It's great outreach and free publicity for them.

    Seems weird that the manager would pull this with a pre- planned event. If the cops were running some kind of stealth event without the knowledge of the store, then that's pretty goofy thing for them to be doing. The manager is still a jerk, but it makes a little more sense that he did what he did if the event wasn't coordinated with him.

    Perhaps there are multiple managers, or higher management neglected to tell him of the event.
