It’s not even Valentine’s Day and Target is already making 2021 holiday plans.

The retailer announced it will be closed on Thanksgiving Day again.

Target and other retailers were closed this past Thanksgiving to help reduce crowds and flatten the curve amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Instead, Target held week-long sales throughout the month of November to spread things out and offered more of its deals online.

Target officials said the response was so positive they will do it again this year.

Target also announced its holiday sales for November and December were up more than 17% from the year before.
