New Year’s Eve feels like the much-needed chance to kick back after a really hectic holiday season. We created giant turkey feasts for Thanksgiving and decked the halls on Christmas. Finally, the presents are unwrapped and Christmas dinner is behind us, and it’s time to pop some bubbles and celebrate on New Year’s Eve before starting a new year fresh on New Year’s Day. But whether we’re hosting a party to send off this year or attending a brunch to ring in the new year, we may need to pick up some last-minute odds and ends while we’re at it. But that leads to something we may all be wondering: Is Target open on New Year’s Eve 2023 and New Year’s Day 2024?

Good news to all who need cocktail napkins or juice for that batch of mimosas: Target will be open on New Year’s Eve 2023. But don’t wait until too late on this busy night to venture out for those party needs, as locations will have modified hours and many will close at 9 p.m. You don’t want to miss out and encounter closed doors and an empty parking lot!

However, you’ll start the new year with good news: On New Year’s Day 2024, January 1, Target stores will be open for business and will operate during normal hours. So, in the event you didn’t get there in time the night before, this will be the time to get cream cheese for the bagels and black-eyed peas for the New Year’s Day good luck Hoppin’ John recipe.

There’ll be plenty to buy and plan for as this year is starting out hectic as usual. If you aren’t sure what those hours will be, you can always check out the store locator on the Target website for further information. That absolutely beats a wasted trip on a busy day!
