2018 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 locations, although most 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 nearby, you can see their hours of operation.
That being said, these are the typical Target stores hours:
- 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
Stores in larger cities may have slightly extended hours, while stores in smaller towns may have slightly shortened hours. The above holiday schedule includes Target stores’ planned closures. There can also be incidents which 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, it’s best to call to confirm.
Finally, a lot of people enjoy Target because of the savings but often fail to factor in the value of their time in driving to their local Target location. If you need to shop at Target, but don’t need to physically go the store, Target.com is open 24/7 – and they offer free shipping.
