Final Take To GO
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.
