Last Thursday, Target kicked off a huge Black Friday extravaganza and millions of shoppers showed up, in-person and online, to jump start holiday shopping, filling their carts with popular, bestselling brands such as Dyson, iRobot, Rubbermaid and Beats. Target kept their doors open until midnight on Thursday and reopened at 6 a.m. on Friday morning. This sale event also included Cyber Monday deals where shoppers took 15% off items site-wide at Target.com.
One Target shopper was ecstatic about their experience Black Friday shopping. “Target does Black Friday right. They are so organized, passing out maps of the store showing where the sale merchandise is,” said @bear_chick on their Instagram. “And a shout out to the awesome Target associates all over the store, helping find items, directing foot traffic and generally being cheerfully helpful.”
