Retail stores such as Target get to decide on an individual basis whether they will observe the particular holiday or not. Even more confusing, some stores observe certain federal holidays while not observing others. This often leaves the consumer having no idea whether a store is going to be open or not on a particular holiday in the US. With Memorial Day landing on Monday, May 25, 2015, many people are beginning to wonder, “Are Target stores open on Memorial Day?”
Is Target Open on Memorial Day?
Yes, Target is open on Memorial Day. For those who enjoy shopping the Memorial Day sales and love to save money at Target, you’ll be happy to know Target stores remain open on Memorial Day. 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.
