It may only be January, but Target is already looking ahead for Thanksgiving Day 2021 plans. Target announced that all stores will be closed on Thanksgiving Day 2021. The decision for the closure on the holiday comes after the success when navigating through the 2020 holiday season during the coronavirus pandemic. Just like many other retailers, Target was forced to make adjustments to the holiday shopping experience by encouraging customers to do more online shopping. The adjustments not only put the safety of employees and guests first, but it also made shopping very convenient. According to Target's statement,
"Our resilient team members used all they’d learned in 2020 to bring those experiences to life—and our results show those efforts resonated. Guests loved our new approach so much that we’ve already decided to carry one change forward. Our Target stores will be closed all day on Thanksgiving Day 2021."
