Columbus Day is Monday, October 10. The post office and many banks will be closed. All other nonessential government offices will also be closed. However, most retailers will remain open. In fact, many retailers will be holding sales in honor of the Columbus Day holiday. A few retailers will close their doors in honor of the Federal holiday so it makes it a bit confusing for shoppers. If you frequent Target you may be wondering if they will be open on Monday or not.

What is Target’s Holiday Schedule?
Most Target stores are open during their normal business hours on holidays, except for Thanksgiving and Christmas. On non-holiday days,most Target locations are open from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Target has shorter operating hours on Sundays. Other than Thanksgiving and Christmas Target operates on these hours. On some holidays, Target stores may open earlier. Columbus Day, however, is not a holiday in which Target will be opening early or closing later than normal.
Target is open most holidays. The only holidays Target is not open include Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. In past years, Target has opened its doors early on Black Friday, opening at 6 a.m. and closing at midnight. Target pharmacies (now owned by CVS Pharmacy) are typically open a bit later (at 9 a.m.) and close earlier (at 9 p.m.) on regular days and holidays. Target photo labs keep regular store hours.
