It appears to be a period of inspection for American businesses. And many company premises are failing the reviews because of critical violations. Similar reports have gotten made about restaurants and fast-food chains.

The federal inspectors went to the Pembroke, Hogansville, and Smyrna stores. There they saw several infractions. These include blocked exit routes, dangerously stacked merchandise boxes, and hard-to-access electrical panels. This disorderly condition could cause workers to slip, trip, or get struck by objects. Since 2017, the company has gotten fined more than $6.5 million after over 70 inspections because of "unsafe conditions that put workers at risk." (source)
