Target Is Open for the 4th of July
Although Target closes on many holidays, the store is open for the 4th of July today, just like it was open for Memorial Day and Father’s Day.
Target’s opening hours may vary by location and region. To see your local store’s hours, visit the store finder here. In Austin, Texas, for example, many stores are open at 8 a.m. In New York City and Los Angeles, many stores are open either 8 a.m. or 7 a.m. So it’s best to check opening hours just to be sure.
As for closing hours, most stores now close at 10 p.m. (the regular time) rather than operating at more limited hours, according to the website’s FAQs. It’s still best to check with your particular store just to make sure.
Target has a number of July 4 sales listed on its website here if you’re wanting to shop. They include clothing, flags, home decor, and party supplies all designed especially for the holiday. These include decorations kits, beads, foil garland, plates, ribbons, cutlery, paper fans, patriotic danglers, and more.

Coronavirus Safety Measures
Target announced a number of safety measures it is taking for COVID-19. They’re be providing non-surgical face masks and gloves for team members and are monitoring the number of people in their stores to maintain social distancing. Their other special measures include monitoring and metering guest access, quantity limits on high-demand items, plexiglass shields at checkout, and reminders for social distancing. Checklanes are being cleaned after each guest transaction and some are rotated to allow for deep-cleaning.
Target is also offering curbside pickup (called Drive Up) through its Target App. Just shop in the Target App and choose Drive Up at checkout. Then you’ll be notified when your order is ready for pickup. Let them know you’re on the way, park in the designated spot, and then let them know that you’re here. Your car will be loaded up with all your items. It’s really simple! Most items are eligible for Drive Up (but not perishable food, flowers, or adult beverages at this time.) You’ll have three days to pick up your order once you place it.
If Drive Up isn’t available, you can order ahead and pick it up at the store, where your order will be waiting for you.
