However you plan on celebrating the holiday season, chances are you have a lot of shopping to get done. You may be buying wrapping paper and presents, or ingredients to make your aunt’s famous Christmas appetizers. This involves a whole lot of trips to the store, but as many retailers have modified hours on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you may be wondering the following question: Are Target stores open on Christmas 2023?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. All Target stores will be closed on Christmas this year, but there’s still an opportunity to pick up those last-minute gifts in time, as most stores will be open until 8 p.m. on Christmas Eve.

Target is planning ahead for their loyal shoppers by offering extended store hours for the holidays, with most stores staying open 7 a.m. to midnight through December 23 and from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. local time on December 24. However, all Target store locations are closed on Christmas Day

Target is among a handful of major retailers, such as Walmart and Costco, that are closed on days such as Thanksgiving and Christmas each year in order to give their teams a much-needed break and celebrate with their own families.

Of course, Target being closed also includes pickup orders being unavailable. They will not be accessible on Christmas Day either, as the store will be closed. Plan ahead and visit the Target app by 6 p.m. local time on Christmas Eve to claim those orders in time — especially if they happen to be items you hope to be placing under the tree come Christmas morning.

Target will not be gone for long, though — although stores will be closed on Christmas Day, all locations will reopen at their regular times on the day after Christmas, December 26. Check your local store hours. There just may be some exciting after-holiday sales to enjoy!
