If you’re looking for end-of-summer deals on clothing, patio items, home decor, and furniture, you won’t want to miss Target Labor Day deals.

Target usually starts their sale just as the holiday weekend kicks off. And to make room on the shelves for early Target Black Friday deals, Target must first offload their remaining summer items. This makes Labor Day weekend the perfect time for them to mark down what’s left.

For Labor Day weekend 2023, Target dropped deals on everything from furniture and home decor to floor care and clothing. Not to mention low back-to-school prices on Target school supplies.

We laid out all the best Target deals for Labor Day 2023 to help you score the biggest savings.

Is Target open on Labor Day?

Yes, Target is open on Labor Day during normal business hours. Target stores are generally open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. but always check with your local Target to confirm their holiday hours are the same.

Classes may already be in session, but Labor Day weekend is still the perfect time to pick up last-minute Target back-to-school supplies.

Target has some great deals on Crayola products (like crayons, markers, colored pencils, and coloring books), plus super low prices on Up & Up school supplies (that’s one of Target’s store brands).

5. Pay with your Target RedCard to save an extra 5% on Labor Day deals.

Target RedCard members know — if you’re not paying with your RedCard, you’re missing out on an extra 5% off your purchase. For Labor Day, this means bigger savings on top of sale prices.

While Target Circle members earn 1% back in rewards on their purchases, RedCard members get a 5% discount. And it’s free to be a member of both.

You can sign up for a RedCard credit card, debit card, or reloadable account. RedCard members also get longer return windows and free shipping with no minimums.
