Target cutting prices on ‘thousands’ of basics items to combat inflation

Published on

Target is lowering prices on thousands of essential consumer goods this summer, encompassing items from diapers to milk. These price reductions, already in effect for 1,500 items, will eventually extend to 5,000 food, beverage, and essential household products.

The price cuts will roll out throughout the summer, impacting both national and Target brands. This initiative comes as more Americans scrutinize their spending due to ongoing inflation affecting household budgets.

Inflation has remained unexpectedly high in the first three months of this year after declining steadily in the latter half of 2023. The increased inflation rates in early 2024 have dimmed hopes that the worst inflation surge in four decades was over, raising concerns about potential price spikes.

Target’s move aligns with efforts by other corporations to adjust prices or create promotions to attract cost-conscious customers. For instance, Aldi announced earlier this month that it would reduce prices on various summer items, including picnic necessities and BBQ essentials. McDonald’s also revealed plans to introduce a $5 meal deal in the U.S. next month to counteract slowing sales and customer frustration with rising prices.

Additionally, Target introduced a new brand collection earlier this year called Dealworthy, featuring nearly 400 basic items, ranging from clothing to electronics, priced under $1, with most items under $10.
