Target is changing its plans for Black Friday. 

The retailer will open for six hours on Thanksgiving (from 6 p.m. to midnight), but stores won't reopen again until 6 a.m. on Black Friday, Nov. 24, a news release says

This is different from last year when Target opened Thursday evening, and didn't close again until late Friday night. 


Which stores will be open – and which will be closed – this Thanksgiving

"Our hours for this year ensure we’re ready with great deals for those guests who want to shop following their Thanksgiving dinner, while also giving our teams a chance to recharge and prepare our stores before we open on Friday to greet guests with even more holiday savings," Janna Potts of Target said in a news release.

Target on Monday also announced its Black Friday deals, most of which will also be available on with free shipping Thanksgiving morning. They include: 

  • A bunch of TVs for under $300, including a Westinghouse 55-inch UHD TV for $249.99.
  • Xbox One S 500GB console for $189.99, which includes a $25 Target gift card.
  • Sony PlayStation 4 1TB console for $199.99. 
  • Nearly 1,000 toys for under $10 and 2,000 toys for under $20, including a popular 3-foot stuffed bear (in stores only). 
  • KitchenAid Ultra Power Plus 4.5-quart Stand Mixer for $249.99. 
  • Buy one, get one 50 percent off on "hundreds" of beauty gift sets.
  • Sweaters and fleeces starting at $10.

And if you're willing to brave the crowds on Black Friday, Target is giving anyone who spends $50 or more in stores a 20 percent off coupon to be used between Nov. 28 and Dec. 10. 

These deals are in addition to the holiday deals the retailer announced last month, as well as a Black Friday preview sale Nov. 6, an early access sale for RedCard holders on Wednesday, Nov. 22, and Cyber Monday deals on Nov. 27.
