Target announces it will no longer be open on Thanksgiving

Target is changing its policies and will no longer open its stores on Thanksgiving. The retailer is making the change a permanent one after shutting down for Thanksgiving in 2020 due to the pandemic. Target was one of several retail chains that would open at 5 p.m. on Thanksgiving to allow shoppers to get a jump on Black Friday shopping.  But Thanksgiving Day sales have slowed in recent years, with online shopping taking over instead.
