On an average day, Target is the mecca for all things awesome and affordable. But with the 2016 Black Friday Target sale on the horizon, it’s safe to say that this popular retailer is about to give shoppers some serious butterflies. And since Target offers a wide variety of products, you can do a majority of your holiday shopping in one place. It really is one of those places that has something for everyone (and yourself too. Because why not treat yo' self after a day treating others.)
A Target rep tells Romper that locations will open their doors at 6 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. And aside from the 2016 Black Friday sale, the “10 Days of Deals” promotion will be making its triumphant return. From Saturday, Nov. 19 through Monday, Nov. 28, Target will offer daily discounts on the most popular product categories. Needless to say, it’s a pretty rad way to hype yourself up for the gift-giving season. To stay updated with this promotion, keep tabs on Target.com.
To top it off, Target will also be hosting a “Black Friday Presale” event. Select deals will be available at Target.com and in stores via Target’s Cartwheel app on Wednesday, Nov. 23. Come Black Friday, all orders on Target.com will ship for free.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wait until the big day to dive into the deals. This roundup sales will help you prep well in advance. Before you know it, you’ll be checking everyone off of your shopping list.
