Last week Walmart announced they will be closed on Thanksgiving day this year to adjust for COVID and the large crowds during holiday season.

Today, Target has become the next store to close its doors on Thanksgiving day saying, “this isnt a year for crowds.”

“This year more than ever, a joyful holiday will be inseparable from a safe one, and we’re continuing to adjust our plans to deliver ease, value and the joy of the season in a way that only Target can,” Target CEO Brian Cornell said in a statement.

The Minneapolis-based retailer also said it will expand its contactless same-day pickup and delivery service, making 20,000 more products, including groceries, available for drive up, order pickup and Shipt delivery.
