Target announces they will close stores on Thanksgiving

Target is following in the footsteps of Walmart announcing the store will be closed on Thanksgiving day to allow employees to “celebrate the holidays safely.”

“The investments we’ve made in our business and our incredible team have enabled us to move with flexibility and speed to meet guests’ changing needs during this global pandemic,” Target CEO Brian Cornell said in a statement. “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.”
