MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- With shoppers officially in the swing of the holiday season, Target is continuing to offer additional ways to save through its “Black Friday Now” deals, with the safety of its guests and team members as its top priority. Today Target also revealed the most popular “Black Friday Now” deals shopped to date, with millions more guests scoring deals using contactless same-day services like Drive Up, Order Pickup and same-day delivery with Shipt than last November.

“Our completely new approach to Black Friday is giving guests flexibility to safely get the best holiday deals on their own terms,” said Christina Hennington, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, Target. “Guests are taking advantage of our safe, contactless options – including shopping in stores or online using our same-day services – to get great ‘Black Friday Now’ deals on the season’s hottest toys, electronics, apparel and more.
