Last week we heard that for the first time in 30 years Walmart is planning to be closed on Thanksgiving!
Now Target is following suit!
Avoiding big crowds and pushy people trying to get deals is a big concern in the season of COVID-19.
In a statement, Target CEO Brian Cornell said, "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 will begin offering its biggest deals online and in stores starting in October. Last week, Walmart announced its decision to stay closed on Thanksgiving.
I know a lot of people don't mind working on Thanksgiving because they get paid time and a half, but maybe this will give everyone the opportunity to focus on family and giving thanks!
