Some people may consider Target a one-stop holiday shop because it offers thousands of items, such as groceries, electronics, baby gear or Starbucks loot, all under one red roof. But don’t expect the retailer to stick to its regular hours during the holiday season. Plus, depending on your location, your local Target may have different hours due to local ordinances that may be in place due to the pandemic.

Instead, they could be shorter or longer, depending on the store and its location. Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the Christmas and New Year’s hours for six major retailers, including Target.

What To Expect When Shopping at Target This Holiday Season

Even though all Target stores are marked with the iconic red-and-white bull’s-eye, that doesn’t mean that the holiday hours will be the same from one location to the next. Hours can vary by store, so it’s best to confirm them in advance if you decide to shop in person this year.

All holiday hours were confirmed as of Jan. 24, 2022. Check with your local retailer to confirm specific hours. Hours and policies are subject to change.
