After three months of operating with reduced hours due to COVID-19, Target has increased store hours by 60 minutes at most stores across the nation.
Most locations “are now back to closing at 10 p.m.,” the retailer posted on its COVID-19 response page, adding that shoppers can find the latest hours for specific locations on its store locator.
Stores continue to set aside time twice a week for senior shoppers age 65 and older, pregnant women and those defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as vulnerable or at-risk.
Most Target stores cut hours beginning March 18 and started dedicating time for at-risk shoppers.

Store hours vary by location as do the times reserved for at-risk shoppers. At most stores, the reserved hour is from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
In late May, Target told USA TODAY that it was “continuously evaluating each decision we’ve made during our coronavirus response” and said the early store closings allowed "team members to restock shelves with essential items our guests look for daily, as well as provide us an opportunity to deeply clean our stores."
Target says it continues to monitor and meter the number of shoppers in stores and to promote social distancing. Stores also continue to do "enhanced cleanings" and have installed plexiglass shields at registers.
Last week, Target announced it was increasing the minimum starting wage to $15 an hour and giving frontline workers a $200 coronavirus bonus.
Target is based in Minneapolis.
