Target to close stores on Thanksgiving this year and beyond – CNET
Target on Monday said one change spurred by the COVID-19 pandemic is here to stay: its stores being closed on Thanksgiving. The retailer said in January that it would close stores on Thanksgiving 2021, but it’s now making that standard policy, saying stores will be closed on future Thanksgivings.
“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,” said Target CEO Brian Cornell in a letter to employees. “You don’t have to wonder whether this is the last Thanksgiving you’ll spend with family and friends for a while, because Thanksgiving store hours are one thing we won’t ‘get back to’ when the pandemic finally subsides.”
