NEW YORK (AP) – Target wants to extend Black Friday well before Thanksgiving.
The Minneapolis-based retailer is kicking off its holiday push with a one-day online sale Monday with nine items that can be ordered online and picked up at stores.
Target is also giving early access to some of the deals reserved for the holiday kickoff by holding a presale on a handful of Black Friday deals at stores and online on Nov. 26, the day before Thanksgiving.
Starting Thanksgiving morning, online customers will have access to all discounts that will be available when stores open at 6 p.m. on the holiday, two hours earlier than last year.
Target is trying to rebound from a weak holiday last year caused by fallout from a data breach disclosed a week before Christmas.
