Target plans midnight Black Friday opening


NEW YORK — As the run-up to holiday shopping intensifies, Target Corp. said Friday that its stores will open at midnight on Black Friday, Nov. 25, for the first time. That’s four hours earlier than last year.

The stores will stay open for 23 hours and close at 11 p.m. on that Friday, the day after Thanksgiving Day.

Target spokesman Susan Kahn said the change was a response to customers’ demands.

Retailers have expanded Black Friday hours each year recently.

Last year, Sears Holdings Corp. opened most Sears and Kmart stores Thanksgiving morning for the first time. Several other stores opened that day too.
