The holiday season is fast approaching and with the cost of everything increasing, you might be on the prowl for a great deal.

If you are, there are certain days that you will want to shop at Target. The reason is that Target has certain days when certain items are on sale in the store.


Each day of the week Target will put certain items on sale. So depending on what you are looking for, you want might to shop on a certain day of the week.

According to Reader's Digest, here are the days of the week that Target puts things on sale in their stores.

Monday — Electronics, accessories, kids clothing, books, baby, and stationery.

Tuesday — Women’s clothing, pets, and food

Wednesday — Men’s clothing, health and beauty, diapers, lawn and garden items, and furniture

Thursday — Housewares, lingerie, shoes, toys, sporting goods, decor, and luggage

Friday — Auto, cosmetics, hardware, and jewelry

Of course like anything else, this is the corporate schedule and it could change from store to store based on the manager and location.

Another fun fact about discounts at Target is that the tag will tell you how much of a discount you are getting on a clearance item.

There will be a small number at the top right corner of the price tag that reveals the percentage off.

Most of the time the highest you will see is a 70. Every once in a while you might see a 90 that means 90% off, but that only usually happens for holiday items.

These Are the 12 Biggest Shopping Malls in Upstate New York

The size of the enclosed malls of Upstate New York covers a whole range of numbers. You have several large malls with between 50-100 stores, and then you have several behemoth malls which host much more than that. For example, #12 on this list has 55 stores and has been open for more than 50 years. Sounds like a pretty respectable mall, doesn't it? Compare that to the #2 on this list which is so large it has more than 18,000 parking spaces!

In this gallery, we have also mentioned some of the original anchor stores for these malls dating back to when they opened. It is fun to hear the old names like Sibley's, Filenes, McCurdy's, and G. Fox and Company again. Here are the 12 largest enclosed malls in Upstate New York. (We include all regions of Upstate including the upper and lower Hudson Valley. This list does not reflect the large malls of metropolitan New York City or Long Island).
