The holidays are known for drawing big crowds, but we’ve all come to know that’s definitely not a pandemic-friendly situation To make sure we get through the holiday season safely this year, Target is closing all of its stores on Thanksgiving Day and making a few other changes.

In an announcement on its website, Target laid out its holiday plans, which involve closing all stores on November 26. But don’t fret! Seasonal deals will start early in October, so you can do all of your holiday shopping safely without weaving through crowds of people and waiting in super long lines. Plus, you’ll be able to find Target’s lowest prices of the year in stores and online. The retailer is also making 20,000 more products available for same-day pickup and delivery services, including fresh and frozen groceries, gifts, and other essentials.

“The investments we’ve made in our business and our incredible team have enabled us to move with flexibility and speed to meet guests’ changing needs during this global pandemic,” Target CEO Brian Cornell said in the announcement. “This year more than ever, a joyful holiday will be inseparable from a safe one, and we’re continuing to adjust our plans to deliver ease, value, and the joy of the season in a way that only Target can.”

Other major retailers—including Walmart and Dick’s Sporting Goods—have announced store closures on Thanksgiving Day, too, in an effort to make the holiday season safer and less stressful for everyone this year.
