NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) —Retail giant Target is joining Walmart in closing on Thanksgiving Day this year.
Target announced the plan on Monday while also encouraging customers to get their holiday shopping in even earlier this year.
"Let's face it: Historically, deal hunting and holiday shopping can mean crowded events, and this isn't a year for crowds," the retailer said in a blog post on its website. "So kick back, relax and enjoy a long nap after you finish that last piece of Thanksgiving turkey. This season, you can count on getting extra-big savings without the extra-long lines, with plenty of opportunities to score the best deals on the hottest items both before and after November 26."
