MINNEAPOLIS — Target will make use of its omnichannel offerings for Black Friday, the mass-merchandise retailer said Monday.
Target, whose stores will open on Thanksgiving day at 8 p.m., will offer sales in stores and on its website, as well as through the Cartwheel mobile app.
"For both our guests and team members, Black Friday is an exciting event that officially marks the beginning of the holiday shopping season," Target EVP Merchandising and Supply Chain said. "By offering advance access to deals at Target.com and opening our stores earlier, we are making it easier for guests to build a Black Friday ritual that works for them."
Cartwheel will feature deals throughout Thanksgiving week, and customers who redeem any offer through the app will also unlock an additional offer card, enabling them to select a deal of their choice. In addition, the chain is offering an additional 5% savings on almost all purchases made using the REDcard, Target's loyalty card program.
