Target intends to help its customers build an ideal Black Friday ritual. This is the key message of the retail chain’s statement regarding its upcoming holiday deals. The company is poised to offer earlier access to its best online deals at Target.com. It is also opening its locations earlier on Thanksgiving to give way to shoppers’ requests.
The retailer is scheduled to open its stores on the evening of Thanksgiving (November 28) at 8 p.m. local time. The best Black Friday deals would be rolled out online and in its stores from November 28 until November 30 (Thursday to Saturday). Moreover, it would start offering 15 deals exclusively for online shoppers within two weeks beginning November 24. More in-store deals would also be rolled out to its Website on Thanksgiving Day.
Earlier Black Friday store hours
Target is not the only retail chain that plans to open earlier for Black Friday this year. Best Buy has also announced its holiday store schedule, which would be earlier than Target’s by two hours as it would open shops at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving evening.
As usual, Target is enticing its customers through offering huge markdowns on most of its popular items for the season. The company published its initial circular today to give shoppers an idea of what deals to expect for its Black Friday shopping schedule.
