Target Launches Black Friday Promotions

Target has revealed its Black Friday ad, which also will deliver online access to early bargains.

Black Friday housewares deals include a KitchenAid Ultra Power Plus 4.5-quart stand mixer, $249.99, a price that provides a $100 discount.

Target said that its Black Friday-associated promotions include the lowest prices ever on some of the hottest gifts and must-have products of the holidays. The company noted that customers would have several opportunities to shop the deals leading up to Thanksgiving, when stores will be open from 6 p.m. to midnight, with nearly all deals available on Target.com early that same day.

Consumers will receive free shipping on all orders during the Black Friday promotional timeframe, with no minimum purchase. In addition, the retailer will have designated team members serving as line service ambassadors to help shoppers and answer questions. Target will direct customers to deals with in-store signage and via mobile app.

In a new promotion, launching November 22, Target will offer more than 100 Black Friday deals on Target.com for REDcard holders only. What it is calling the Early Access sale begins on the morning of November 22. REDcard shoppers who take advantage of the sale still receive the normal 5% savings on most items.

“When you consider the breadth of our Black Friday offers, guests can save more across Target than any other time of the year, with literally thousands of deals to choose from,” said Mark Tritton, Target evp/chief merchandising officer. “With low prices in every department, as well as sales like Cyber Monday and our new Weekend Deals, we’ll offer a steady stream of deals throughout the season.”
