Target is the latest store to have its Black Friday deals leaked online as consumers continue to search the web for the scoop on this yearâ€™s holiday shopping deals.
Black Friday, which is the day after Thanksgiving, traditionally marks the beginning of Christmas shopping in the United States. Many retailers offer doorbuster sales as an incentive for shoppers.
Targetâ€™s Black Friday deals include $3 toasters and coffeemakers, deals on high-definition televisions, and discounts of 50 percent on clothes and toys, according to GottaDeal.com.Â Brad Olson, founder of the web site, said Wednesday that he received a copy of the discount retailer’s ad.

Target spokeswoman Sarah Boehle said the company “is unable to confirm the accuracy of any [Black Friday] two-day ads or pricing information that is posted online,â€ according to a CNN.com report.
“Each year we chronicle lots of excitement about our ads when we hear that they were prematurely leaked,’ said Boehle. “We really appreciate all the interest. We encourage consumers to look for our official [Black Friday] ad.”
Target is expected to release its weekly circular the week of November 22, 2009.
Several Web sitesÂ are dedicated to Black Friday sales for stores such as Sears, Toys â€˜Râ€™ Us, Target, Kmart, and more.Â Here are a few to help shoppers get started:
