Is In-Person Holiday Shopping Worth The Hassle This Year?

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – At a time when the thought of holiday crowds might be more frightening than festive, Target is introducing a new safety measure: reservations. In order to cut down on congestion in the store and the spread of COVID for customers and staff, the company is setting up an online reservation system to allow people to call dibs on a spot in a line before leaving their homes.

Other tools Target is using include a new mobile payment option in its app that facilitates self-checkout without the need to touch the scanning device.

Our question of the night: is holiday shopping worth the hassle this year?
