If your idea of a great Christmas present is aimlessly walking the aisles of Target, or if you find yourself needing a very last-minute gift or recipe ingredient — hang on a second. Target is not open on Christmas … not at all. So if you’re looking for a festive holiday Target run, you’re out of luck.

But if you need something to make you feel a little better, there are a number of stores open on Christmas and some fast food joints and restaurants open on Christmas, too.

Is Target Open on Christmas?

No, Target isn’t open on Christmas. What are the Target Christmas hours? No, really, there aren’t any.

Like most retailers, including Walmart, Kohl’s, and Best Buy, Target will be closed for Christmas. That’s right; you won’t be able to hit the Dollar Spot or grab Christmas Squishmallows or holiday recipe ingredients.

Need a last-minute gift, though? You can always send digital gift cards online at Target.com that will arrive within a few hours. Don’t forget to use your Target RedCard and save 5%.

Christmas Eve Last-Minute Gift Deals

Target had plenty of Christmas Eve last-minute gift deals in 2021. Whether it’s stocking stuffers, an air fryer, or the newest Lego set or LOL Surprise toy, Target had holiday savings for you. Here’s a look at what they offered.

Target Drive Up, Order Pickup, and Same-Day Delivery Hours on Christmas Eve

In 2021 you could place an online order for Target Drive Up or Order Pickup as late as 6 p.m. for same-day pickup. For same-day delivery from Shipt, the final delivery window was 5 – 6 p.m. Target says you could get your order in as soon as an hour on Christmas Eve, but with a store full of procrastinators shopping at the eleventh hour, expect it to take longer. While Target Drive Up and Order Pickup are free, delivery is also free if you’re a Shipt member; otherwise, it’ll cost you $9.99 per delivery.


When does Target Christmas clearance begin?

What are the Target New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day hours?

We expect Target will be open on New Year’s Eve until 9 p.m. and on New Year’s Day during regular hours. Their year-end clearance sales on clothing, holiday decor, and more will continue into 2023.

Happy Holidays!
