Target Corporation (NYSE: TGT) announced today it will lower everyday regular prices on approximately 5,000 frequently shopped items across its assortment.1 The retailer has just reduced prices on about 1,500 items, with thousands more price cuts planned to take effect throughout the summer. Consumers will enjoy savings on everyday items such as milk, meat, bread, soda, fresh fruit and vegetables, snacks, yogurt, peanut butter, coffee, diapers, paper towels, pet food and more.

These price reductions will collectively save consumers millions of dollars this summer. Target routinely adjusts its prices to ensure it is competitive within the markets it does business. These new price reductions are on top of the retailer’s everyday low prices.

“We know consumers are feeling pressured to make the most of their budget, and Target is here to help them save more,” said Rick Gomez, executive vice president and chief food, essentials and beauty officer, at Target. “Our teams work hard to deliver great value every day, and these new lower prices across thousands of items will add up to additional big savings for the millions of consumers that shop Target each week for their everyday needs.”
