CENTRAL ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Several stores are closing early out of an abundance of caution.
Employees at the Walmart location in Champaign said the store was closing at 4 p.m. The Urbana and Savoy locations will close at 5 p.m.
This comes as hundreds of people peacefully protested in downtown Urbana on Monday afternoon.
Groups also cleaned up around Champaign today after looters ransacked businesses in the Marketplace Mall and on Prospect Avenue in Champaign on Sunday.
