Walmart and Sam's Club will also be closed

Target stores will be closed on Thanksgiving due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The retailer announced Monday it would join Walmart and Sam’s Club in closing this year. Target also plans to start rolling out its biggest deals of the year in stores and online in October.

The Minneapolis-based retailer announced an early preview of its holiday shopping plans, about four months before the holidays.

Target says it will “offer the deals earlier than ever to help cut down on the crowds big sales typically draw,”saying “this isn’t the year for crowds.”
