Retail stores, like Target, Walmart and Costco decide individually whether they will stay open. Some stores observe some holidays while they ignore others. This leaves many consumers wondering whether their favorite stores will be open or not. With Memorial Day on Monday, May 30, many people are wondering whether Target will be open or not.
Is Target Open on Memorial Day?
Yes, Target is open on Memorial Day. Memorial Day is also a great day for sales, so if you love saving money at Target, the stores will be open. There are only two days during the year when Target stores close (Easter and Christmas), and they remain open the other 363 days a year.
Shopping Target Memorial Day Sales
When shopping sale events, the most important thing to remember is that a deal is never a deal if you purchase something which you weren’t planning to purchase in the first place. It doesn’t matter how much of a discount you can get on the item. Discounts are only true savings if you buy something you were already planning to purchase and use.
With this in mind, there may be some quality items you can purchase at a discount at the Target Memorial Day sale. As part of their sale this year, they are discounting summer home decor, summer clothing, grills and accessories, and swimwear. While these will be less expensive than if you buy them during the middle of summer, they won’t be as inexpensive as you can get them if you can wait until the summer season is over.
For those who are looking for deep discounts, you can look on the clothing racks for the last of the winter clothing which the store will be trying to get rid of so it doesn’t have to inventory it. In fact, anything remaining from winter may be discounted as much as 75% or more off its original retail price.
Will Target.com be available?
Because Target’s hours will not be affected by the federal holiday, Target.com will be running business-as-usual on Memorial Day. However, expect deliveries from Friday on to be slightly delayed. USPS workers have off on Memorial Day which means no packages or mail will be delivered on Monday.
If you have a question about Target’s hours or sales over the Memorial Day weekend, check their website. You can also keep a lookout in the mail this week for a flyer from Target or give your local store a call.
