After Singer’s Tweet, Sephora Closing Stores for Inclusion Training

(Updated at 1:55 p.m.) Don’t be surprised if the Sephora in Reston Town Center is closed tomorrow (Wednesday).

The cosmetics chain plans to close its stores for training on Wednesday (June 5) after R&B singer SZA tweeted in April that she was racially profiled at a California store.

Sephora responded with tweets to the singer saying that they “take complaints like this very seriously and are actively working with our teams to address the situation immediately.”

The cosmetics company posted on Facebook on May 23:

On the morning of 6/5, every Sephora store, distribution center, and corporate office in the US will close to host inclusion workshops for our employees. These values have always been at the heart of Sephora, and we’re excited to welcome everyone when we reopen.

The stores will be closed for one hour, The New York Times reported. Sephora has a Reston Town Center spot at 11960 Market Street.
