It’s Father’s Day 2020 and as you’re thinking about your grocery needs and supplies that are on your list, you may be wondering what Walmart or Target’s hours are near you today and what their Father’s Day specials are. Whether you’re wanting to visit yourself, get your order delivered, or have your order taken out to you via curbside shopping, knowing the hours and specials today can be helpful. Walmart and Target have changed things up a lot due to the coronavirus outbreak. Here’s the latest information.
Most Walmart Stores Are Open 7 AM to 8:30 PM
Walmart is open for Father’s Day 2020, but the hours are still limited. Back on March 15, Walmart changed its store hours due to the coronavirus outbreak and then on March 19, they limited the hours a little more. These hours are still in place, according to Walmart’s latest update.
Most 24-hour stores and most other Walmart stores and Neighborhood Markets are still only open from 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day, unless the store already operated fewer hours regularly. And yes, this includes Father’s Day. So if you’re used to your Walmart being open 24 hours, you’ll likely need to adjust your shopping expectations today.
For the store hours near you, see the store finder, as limited hours may vary by location. Expect to see other changes, as many Walmarts have new requirements and procedures in place for COVID-19.
The change in hours was put in place to give employees more time to restock and sanitize the stores. Stores also introduced Express Delivery that delivers items within less than two hours. Not all stores have this option, but it’s being expanded all the time.
