Target Corp. is the latest retailer with plans to open earlier on Thanksgiving this year.
Target Corp. will open its doors at 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, three hours earlier than a year ago, to kick off the holiday shopping season.
The goal is to allow customers to shop "however, whenever they want to shop," Ms. Tesija said.
Kathee Tesija, executive vice president of merchandising at Target, told The Associated Press that she felt the 8 p.m. time was just right, based on the competitive landscape and the sentiment among shoppers and its own store staff.
