Target Corp. goes on 50 years of Black Friday'sby Annie Baxter, Minnesota Public Radio
ST. PAUL, Minn. — They didn't call it Black Friday at the time, but 50 years ago Target held its first-ever day-after-Thanksgiving sale.
The discount retailer had just begun to operate in May 1962. By coincidence, Wal-Mart and Kmart also opened their doors that year.
MPR News reporter Annie Baxter discusses Target's 50 years and how the retailer has evolved in that time.
