What Holidays Does Target Close?

Like most major retailers, Target is closed on Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. You will find extended hours around these days to help you get your Target fix. To find specific hours for your store, you can reference Target’s store locator or mobile app.

Target’s Return Policy

Target will accept returns on most unopened items in new condition within 90 days. If you are a Target Red Card holder, you will get an extra 30 days to return nearly all items. While their policy is quite accommodating, there are a few exceptions:

  • Electronics and entertainment-related purchases must be returned within 30 days. For items purchased between Nov. 1 and Dec. 25, the 30-day refund period will start on Dec. 26.
  • All mobile phones, regardless of brand, must be returned within 14 days.
  • All Apple products, except mobile phones, must be returned within 15 days. For items purchased between Nov. 1 and Dec. 25, the 15-day return period will begin on Dec. 26.

Final Take

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.

Their in-store services, like CVS Pharmacy, Optical Center and Starbucks also might have different hours than the store itself, so it is best to confirm them in advance before you make a trip.
