NEW YORK (AP) — Target Corp. says it will open its doors at 9:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving, three hours earlier than a year ago, to kick off the holiday shopping season.
The discounter joins several other major retailers including Wal-Mart Stores Inc. that are opening earlier in the evening on the holiday and staggering deals over the two-day period.
Toys R Us is opening at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving.
Lord & Taylor, which was closed on Thanksgiving last year, will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Target plans to offer deals on certain cameras and TVs among other items for the earlier opening. From 4:00 a.m. to noon the next day, customers who spend $50 or more on clothing accessories or home products will earn a $10 Target gift card to use toward a future purchase.
Target is based in Minneapolis.
