Target to be Closed on Thanksgiving

  • Target will not be open on Thanksgiving. 
  • Avoiding big crowds and pushy people trying to get deals is a big concern in the season of COVID-19. 
  • In a statement, Target CEO Brian Cornell said, "This year more than ever, a joyful holiday will be inseparable from a safe one, and we’re continuing to adjust our plans to deliver ease, value and the joy of the season in a way that only Target can."
  • Target will begin offering its biggest deals online and in stores starting in October. Last week, Walmart announced its decision to stay closed on Thanksgiving.
  • Do you think stores will not offer traditional Black Friday sales this year to quell crowds?
