Target Coronavirus Response Updates

We have some new operating updates at Target stores as they make changes to help shoppers keep safe and secure in the wake of the worsening coronavirus outbreak.
As of March 25, 2020, Target has temporarily suspended accepting ANY in-store product returns and exchanges for the next three weeks -- just to help keep employees protected.
Hang on to your products and/or receipts, though, since Target says they will honor any returns that expire during this time period for an additional three weeks afterwards.
Other new changes: if you bring in reusable bags during this time, be prepared to bag your own items -- Target employees will refrain from handling those reusable bags out of an abundance of caution.
Checkstands will also be cleaned in between each and every transaction, so be prepared for lines to move a touch more slowly. And as at other chains, you'll see floor decals in line to help you maintain social distancing.
Finally, beginning Tuesday, March 31, Target is expanding the shopping times for the elderly and anyone with underlying health conditions.
Now, the first hour of Tuesday and Wednesday mornings will be reserved exclusively for shoppers that fall into either or both categories. Bonus: the in-store CVS pharmacies will also be open during this time!
