Target is helping boost the St. Cloud area economy on cyber-Monday, and you don't even need to shop online at their website today with 15% off most everything.

I'll be the 1st to tell you to shop locally and keep the money in our area, but it doesn't always mean that you can't shop online. Did you realize there are many local area businesses that have websites and offer their own cyber-Monday deals right here in St. Cloud?

So what if you don't like shopping online, but still want a great cyber-Monday deal? Minnesota-based Target is offering discounts today that have their stores and website busy today - 15% off most every item. This may just be the best deal you'll find anywhere online.

If you remember last year, Target attempted this (online only) and it caused their website to nearly crash. I've kept checking their website and it's been solid, so kudos to them for making sure it didn't happen again this year. What's different from last year though, they've added the same deal IN-STORE too.

Both parking lots in St. Cloud's east and west side Target stores have been packed all day, so plan to wait in some lines today, but for 15% off everything it might be worth the wait.

The 15% off cyber-Monday deals at Target end at store close tonight.
