According to Target, millions of customers shopped hundreds of thousands of items across the retailer’s assortment— from home décor and housewares to clothing, toys, electronics and more— during Target’s Deal Days, two days of online savings on July 15 and 16.

Following Amazon’s announcement of its annual Prime Day, which this year will be held over two days on July 15 and July 16, Target will go head-to-head with the e-commerce giant with its Target Deal Days.
Prime Day has become an event, according to market research firm A.T. Kearney, with 63% of Amazon.com customers planning their participation in the promotion four days before its launch, but that doesn’t mean the e-tailer is the only company that benefited from the occasion.
