Target Will Close Their Stores On Thanksgiving Day, For Good

Target will no longer open its stores on Thanksgiving Day, making permanent a shift to the unofficial start of the holiday season that was suspended during the pandemic. 

To limit crowds in stores, retailers last year were forced to turn what had become a weekend shopping blitz into an extended event, with big holiday discounts beginning as early as October. 

That forced shift appears to have been fortuitous. 

U.S. holiday sales last November and December rose 8.2% in 2020 from the previous year, according to The National Retail Federation, the nation’s largest retail trade group. The trade group predicts 2021 could shatter that record, growing between 8.5% and 10.5%. 

Americans, able to get the same offers over a broader timespan and relieved from some of the stresses that go hand in hand with the holidays, appeared to embrace the change, which has also resonated with workers, Target said.

I've never really understood the appeal of Black Friday when a lot of the times you can just get the same deals online. Cyber Monday >>> Black Friday

Like who wants to go out, wait in lines for hours, and then get trampled by people when you could just go to Amazon or something and get the exact same deals? :giveup:

They closed here in Canada after they failed to compete so i wondered if the same happened in the US lol

 

But i guess its different. What happened here in Canada i think is they underestimated how competitive retail has become and they thought they didnt have to try that hard here and didnt come here with anything special or competitive prices (relative to quality keeping in mind they are higher end than a place like walmart). 

 

So they failed miserably. Something like $4 Billion in losses the short time they operated in Canada :air:
