Democratic U.S. Rep. Bobby Rush says his planned Black Friday protest of Target will go on, after political muscle hasn’t changed plans to shutter two South Side stores.

“Target wants the Christmas money from the very community it’s turning it’s back on. That’s adding insult to injury,” Rush said.

The Target stores, one in Morgan Park and the other in Chatham, will close in February after “multiple years of decline and underperformance,” a Target spokeswoman has said.

Rush has organized a Black Friday protest and boycott at Target’s 85th Street and Cottage Grove Avenue store, hoping to hit the retailer in the wallet. He said he’s puzzled about the claim the store isn’t doing well.
