Target Will Suspend In-Store Returns And Reusable Bag Sales

Target announced several in-store new safety measures today:

  • “We’ll have a team member stationed at our store entrances to make sure carts are clean and available in an orderly fashion.
  • Our checklanes will be cleaned after each guest transaction, and dedicated team members will guide guests in line while that happens.
  • Target will stop accepting in-store product returns and exchanges for the next three weeks—but don’t worry if you have a return that expires during that period, because we’ll still honor them three weeks past the holding period.
  • We’ll pause our sales of reusable bags, and ask guests who bring them in to bag their own items at checkout. Our paper and plastic bags will be available and we’ll waive any local fees during this time.
  • We’re also expanding our dedicated shopping hours for our most vulnerable guests, including the elderly and those with underlying health concerns. Starting next week, we’ll reserve Tuesday and Wednesday mornings—and our partners at CVS will open their pharmacy locations early to accommodate those shoppers.”

The return policy makes sense and I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s extended. That’s great as long as Target keeps extending the return window. I’d expect other stores to pause returns as well.

Ironically in just a month we’ve gone from seeing plastic bag bans to reusable bag bans. While reusable bags might be better for the environment, they are a germ and virus vector and shouldn’t be used in times like these as they can spread disease.

Anyone know what the age for the Tuesday and Wednesday morning? Stop and shop is 60 and ShopRite is 65


Target is far more better then Walmart!
Avoiding Walmart as much as possible


Bjs doesn’t take returns. Publix in Florida either.


So happy I did all my target returns yesterday!


Nows a good time to use a premium amex card still offering return protection.
No local stores accepting returns. While the policy makes sense, if a return is needed….


How ironic I did a return yesterday and was gonna go back today ( my daily outing to Dunkin’ and target)


Not so great as I have returns that aren’t KLP.

Shoprite isn’t taking any returns & neither are the kosher supermarkets such as Goldberg’s in BP or Moisha’s in Flatbush
