Friday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Friday’s business headlines.

Walgreens test

Kids three and older will now be able to get COVID tests at Walgreens.

Walgreens operates about 620 COVID-19 testing sites, with another 80 locations to open later in the week.

All of the locations will have COVID testing for children.


Target is implementing a reservation system at stores around the nation in an effort to curb crowds during the busy shopping season.

Target said it will continue to monitor and limit the number of guests allowed in each store at one time, which means customers will likely have to wait in designated outside areas with social distancing markers.

If there is a line to get in, guests will be able to reserve their spot in line on Target’s website instead of standing outside.

Cord cutting

TV cord-cutting is picking up steam and AT&T’s CEO predicts there’s a long way to go before it stops.

There were about 91 million pay-TV subscribers at the end of 2019.

About 3.5 million people cut the cord in the first half of the year, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.

Food grocery

Grocery stores say it may be hard to find some products this fall.

Those include baking ingredients, canned soups and SPAM.

Americans have already stocked up on some of these items.
