Bye, Bye Black Friday. Target Latest to Announce Thanksgiving Hours

Posted: Updated:

(WCCO) - Minnesota based Target is the latest retailer to announce it will be opening earlier than Black Friday.

Officials with Target announced Monday morning its stores will open at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving night, one hour earlier than last year. 

Target stores will remain open throughout the night and close at 11 p.m. on the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 29.

Target executives said 8 p.m. felt just right, based on the competitive landscape and sentiment among shoppers and store staff.

It used to be that stores waited until 5 a.m. or 6 a.m. to start black Friday sales. But that's changed over the past several years.

This year, Macy's, J.C. Penney, Kohl's, Best Buy and several other stores will be opening the night of Thanksgiving.
