Target To Offer Discount Both In-stores And Online For The First Time

Target Corp. said Thursday that it will offer an extra 10% discount on Sunday both in stores and online, a first for the retailer. Coupons will be available in the Sunday weekly ad. Or, starting Friday, shoppers can text the word "Run" to "Target" (827438) for a mobile coupon. Online shoppers will have the 10% automatically deducted. Target says the promotion is timed for both back-to-school and Labor Day holiday shopping. Target shares are down 1.2% in Thursday trading, and down 2.4% for the year to date. The S&P 500 Index is up 6.2% for the year so far.
