Target Stores will close for six hours on Black Friday

In 2016, the National Retail Federation found that almost 100 million people shopped brick and mortar stores during Thanksgiving weekend.

Target also says its Black Friday deals will be available online early the morning of Thanksgiving, with free shipping on all orders. Its stores will then reopen at 6 a.m. local time on Friday until 10 p.m., 11 p.m. or midnight local time.

"We know that shopping Black Friday deals at Target is an annual tradition for many of our guests across the country", Janna Potts, executive vice president and chief stores officer, said.

Target has unveiled its Thanksgiving and Black Friday plans. Walmart is also planning a series of in-store shopping events with product demonstrations to highlight the best of the season's offerings.

Like many retailers, Target is also pushing more incentives for customers to come back to the store and trying to make it easier to get deals.

If you are an excessive Black Friday shopper, please tone it down a bit, save some room for some more pumpkin pie and consider shopping online during Cyber Monday instead.

Customers who spend $50 or more on Black Friday will receive a 20 percent off coupon that can be used on one shopping trip between November 28 and December 10.
