About this Deal
Target's Black Friday 2020 will be a series of week-long sales throughout November, instead of the traditional short holiday shopping extravaganza.
The retailer unveiled more details of its plans Thursday, along with some of the deals to help shoppers plan for "a safe, stress-free shopping experience" amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Christina Hennington, Target's executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, said in a news release that the retailer was taking a "completely new approach to Black Friday" to give shoppers more flexibility.
"By offering a preview of our 'Black Friday Now' deals for the entire month of November and extending our Price Match Guarantee, we're taking the guesswork out of holiday shopping and making Target the easiest place to get the best deals," Hennington said.

More Drive Up spots, safety measures
Target started talking about a different holiday shopping season in July when officials announced stores would be closed this Thanksgiving for the first time since 2011.
Last week, Target said stores were adapting new measures to make it easier for holiday shoppers to safely shop for gifts. Among the advances is an update to the Target mobile app's Wallet payment option so it can be used to checkout in a contactless manner, bypassing a scanning device.
Target is making it easier for customers to use its Drive Up service by letting shoppers show their app through the car window to get purchases they have made online.
The total number of Drive Up spots will be expanded by nearly 8,000 spaces nationwide, providing more spots for drivers to pull up and have purchases brought to their cars. Shoppers also can change their order using Order Pickup or Drive Up even after getting to the store.
Shoppers can also check on Target.com/line to see whether there's a line at their local store before heading out. If so, they can make a reservation and get a text message when they can enter the store.
