Target store hours and holiday schedule
One of the things which can get frustrating with stores like Target is they don’t publish the schedule of which holidays they’re open and closed. For those who have to make a quick trip to the store for whatever reason on a holiday, not knowing if the store will be open when they arrive can get frustrating. Further complicating things is federal holidays aren’t necessarily store holidays. Target corporate gets to choose if they want to remain open or closed on each holiday. For those who would like to know when Target is open and when it will be closed, the list below will let you know.

There are only two days out of the year when Target closes its doors — Easter Sunday and Christmas Day.

For example, Target is open limited hours on Thanksgiving Day, and has extended hours on various days during the Christmas holiday shopping season.

2017 Target Store Hours

Target doesn’t have a set store hour schedule which applies to all of its stores. The actual hours of a Target store may vary from location to location. Target does have some 24 hour a day locations, although most do have a closing time each day. Weekday hours and weekend hours may be different depending on the store. The best way to find out the hours of your local Target is to go to their store location tool. When you find the store near you you can see their hours of operation.

That being said, these are the typical hours most target stores seem to follow:

  • Target stores are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 10:00 pm
  • Target stores are open Saturday from 8:000 am until 10:00 pm or 11:00 pm
  • Target stores are open Sunday from 8:00 am until 10:00 pm

Those stores in larger cities may have slightly extended hours, while those stores in smaller towns may have slightly shortened hours. The above holidays when Target is closed are the planned closures. There can be incidents which will force the closure of a store such as damage or severe weather. If you have any doubt about whether or not a location will be open, or what their store hours are, the best course of action to take is to call to confirm. Don’t forget there are plenty of ways to save money at Target for those who shop there.

    I wish these stores would give their employees more holidays. I realize its convenient for many to be open on holidays since they don’t have to work and can shop, but those working retail need time off as well.
