Target isn’t letting eBay have all the fun in trying to take a bite out of Amazon’s summer sale dominance — the retailer announced its own Target Deal Days sales for July 15 and 16. It didn’t offer too many specifics, but said the deals would include home, apparel and toy brands.

“Last year’s One-Day Sale was one of our biggest days of the year for online sales,” said Mark Tritton, Target’s executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, in a release.

“This year, we’re giving guests more discounts across even more of our assortment with two days to save on hundreds of thousands of items and offering the best options in retail for delivery and pick up on their terms, including same-day.”
