Mile-high Targets Open on Turkey Day
Target Corp. is experimenting with limited hours on Thanksgiving Day at its 29 stores in the Denver market.
Target stores in Denver will be open from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day; all other Target stores will remain closed for the day. “Target always looks for ways to provide our guests with an exceptional shopping experience and one-stop convenience,” said Annette Miller, Target’s senior VP of grocery. “Our Denver guests can stop in on Thanksgiving for any last-minute shopping needs.”
Target is piloting limited hours on Thanksgiving Day in Denver because it continues to be a strong grocery market, the company reports, featuring numerous SuperTargets and stores with the expanded fresh-food layout. Target plans to evaluate the Denver test before making decisions about whether to expand Thanksgiving hours to other markets in the future.
Minneapolis-based Target Corp. operates 1,767 stores across the United States and plans to open its first stores in Canada in 2013.
