Do you really need a reason to go shop at Target? Probably not, but this time of year, it’s easy to forget some ingredient you need for a family-favorite Thanksgiving recipe. Or maybe you just want to work off your turkey dinner with a leisurely stroll through the aisles. While you can find stores open on Thanksgiving, what about Target — are they open on Thanksgiving?
Target — once a bustling hub of Black Friday activity the evening of Thanksgiving — is not open on Turkey Day anymore. But that doesn’t mean you’re completely shut out from shopping there on Thanksgiving. We’ll tell you what you need to know about Target’s Thanksgiving plans, and how to shop accordingly.

Is Target Open on Thanksgiving?
No, and they’re going to be closed on Thanksgiving forever. It’s true.
Target stores and in-store CVS pharmacies closed on Thanksgiving in 2020 and 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, and in November of last year, Target announced they would permanently close on Thanksgiving, crushing any hope of ever shopping Tarjay (yep, been in the dictionary since 2008) again on Turkey Day.
Not only is Target going to be closed on Thanksgiving, but the store locations inside of Target will be closed, too. CVS Pharmacies inside Target? Closed. And your Starbucks inside of Target will be closed (although good-ol standalone Starbucks is open on Thanksgiving).
Meanwhile, CVS, Walgreens, grocery stores, and a host of convenience stores open their doors on the holiday. Of course, we encourage you to take advantage of Target’s early Black Friday deals throughout the first few weeks of November, their online-only Thanksgiving Day deals at Target.com, and again on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
What time do Target stores open on Thanksgiving Eve?
Target stores will be open regular hours from 8 a.m. – 10 p.m. on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. Whether you’re shopping for a few last-minute must-haves or everything you need for a Thanksgiving meal, Target will have three options for getting your stuff the same day, within two hours. When placing a Target order via the web, you can select Order Pickup (in-store), delivery with Shipt for $9.99 per delivery (free with a Shipt membership), or Target’s free Drive-Up service on orders placed through the Target app.
Target Pharmacy Hours on Thanksgiving Eve
In-store CVS pharmacies will be open on Thanksgiving Eve. However, because CVS owns them, pharmacy hours may vary between locations. For this reason, it’s best to call your nearby Target to verify their operating hours.

Target Holiday Hours
To help ensure you complete your holiday shopping on time, Target extends their operating hours the last two weeks before Christmas. In 2021, Target extended their hours to 7 a.m. to midnight every day starting Dec.12 through Dec. 23. We expect the same again this holiday season.
