There is a lot of confusion when it comes to Target discount stores, and whether or not they are open on Easter Sunday. Much of this is due to the conflicting information on the Internet. If you do a search, you’ll find some websites claiming Target will be closed for Easter while others say Target is open on Easter, or that some of their stores will be open. Jessie at Target guest relations confirmed to me that all “Target stores are closed on Easter Sunday.” You can see the Target holiday schedule, or the Easter weekend schedule below:
Is Target open on Good Friday?
Yes, Target is open on Good Friday. Target stores will be open for their typical Friday hours on March 25, 2016, for all those who need to do some last minute Easter shopping.
Is Target open on Easter Saturday?
Yes, Target is open on Easter Saturday. For those who procrastinate to the very last minute, Target stores will be open on Saturday, March 26, 2016. Store should be open during their regular Saturday hours, but if you plan to go in the evening near closing time, it’s best to call ahead of time to make sure the local store doesn’t close earlier than you expect.
Is Target open on Easter Sunday?
No, Target is closed on Easter Sunday. Target stores close only two days a year with Easter being one of them. The other is on Christmas Day. There are some stores which will be open on Easter such as Walmart, drugstore chains like CVS, Walgreens and Rite Aid, and many grocery stores, but Target won’t be open at any point on March 27, 2016.
Is Target open on Easter Monday?
Yes, Target is open on Easter Monday. Target stores resume their normal Monday hours on March 28, 2016, the day after Easter. For those who love to save money at Target, this can be a great time to stock up on Easter decoration for next year. Most Easter items will be discounted at 50% or more over their regular retail price starting on Monday. Another thing to look for are goods marketed for Easter in pastel colors which can be used for other occasions during the year, such as paper plates or napkins. For those who enjoy chocolate or other sweets, it’s a great time to stock up on them as well. The Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs taste the exact same as they did on March 5, but they are a lot less expensive on March 27. If you don’t mind your sweets having an Easter theme when you eat them, you can get a lot of candy at a great price.
