Target Will No Longer Be Open on Thanksgiving, Making Change Permanent


Target’s decision to close its stores on Thanksgiving, once considered a temporary move due to pandemic safety concerns, has now been made a permanent change.

Per a report from the Associated Press, Target will now keep its stores closed every Thanksgiving, marking a commitment that could very well result in other major retailers making similar announcements in the near future. In comments to employees, Target CEO Brian Cornell called the move part of a “new standard” within the company.

“What started as a temporary measure driven by the pandemic is now our new standard—one that recognizes our ability to deliver on our guests’ holiday wishes both within and well beyond store hours,” Cornell said.
