Target Hours Today, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day


This year, you’re having the greatest party ever. Black and gold decorations are tastefully strewn about your home, sweet and savory treats have been plated beautifully, and the champagne is chilling, ready to be popped at the stroke of midnight to celebrate the beginning of another great year.

It all seems so perfect until you get a call. Maybe your brother is bringing his new girlfriend, which means you need more food and possibly some extra seating. Or your best friend has picked out the exact same dress you were planning to wear, and with this much planning there’s no way you’ll allow a fashion faux pas.

Luckily for you, Target hours today, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day do not differ all that much, meaning you can rush to the superstore for all your last-minute needs.

Target’s Hours of Operations

Target stores throughout the country will be open on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, though the times may vary by location. Most Target hours of operations on New Year’s Eve will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., leaving you with plenty of time to pick up some last-minute items before the ball drops.

The store’s variety of grocery options will cover the extra food you need, and there are several affordable seating options for any extra bums that may crash your shindig.

Target also has a huge assortment of dresses and ensembles in its fashion department at amazing prices to ensure you’re the belle of the ball, even if you’re not wearing the original outfit you had planned.

Target open and close timing on New Year’s Day will also be 8 a.m. and 10 p.m., meaning you’ll be able to run out and pick up some extra breakfast food and some new toothbrushes for the unexpected guests who may have stayed over.

Yes, this year you’re throwing the party to end all parties. You’re ringing in the new year with style, partying like it’s 1999, and popping bottles with your crew of friends and family. And when that crew unexpectedly expands at the last minute or if there’s a minor wardrobe malfunction, you can handle those curveballs with ease and head to your local Target to pick up any last-minute items you may need.

Thank goodness they’re keeping the majority of their locations open over this holiday weekend; your party might tank without them!
