Target stores to close Thanksgiving due to COVID-19 pandemic, following Walmart's holiday closing announcement
Target stores will be closed on Thanksgiving due to the coronavirus pandemic, but plan to start rolling out its biggest deals of the year in stores and online in October.
The Minneapolis-based retailer announced an early preview of its holiday shopping plans Monday, about four months before the holiday and days after Walmart said its stores would be closed on Thanksgiving for the first time since the late 1980s.
“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 CEO Brian Cornell said in a news release Monday.
