No, Target does not allow customers to carry firearms in its stores, even if they have a valid concealed carry permit. The company has a strict no-guns policy that is designed to create a safe shopping environment for everyone.
Target is not alone in this decision. Many other retailers, including Walmart, Starbucks, and Costco also prohibit firearms in their stores. Employees and customers alike have raised concerns about the potential for violence in places where guns are present. These companies believe that the best way to keep their store environments safe is to ban guns altogether.
Of course, many people support the right to carry firearms in public places. They argue that conceal carriers are law-abiding citizens who pose no threat to others. They believe that gun-free zones simply create targets for criminals and make it more difficult for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves.

Once you have met all the requirements, you will be issued a permit that allows you to concealed carry in Target stores. If you are caught carrying without a permit, you may be subject to arrest and charges.
