A diverse crowd of lawmakers, activists and community leaders — including pop icon Usher, with whom many photos were taken — gathered in the East Room to witness President Joe Biden sign into law a new federal holiday: Juneteenth, which on June 19 commemorates the end of slavery in the United States.

As Target kicks off a rival sales event to go head-to-head with Amazon Prime Day, the big-box retailer is spotlighting its grocery department. It is adding discounts and promotions to nudge customers toward its aisles of cereal, meat and soda. Target rolled out Deal Days to compete with Prime Day in 2019, but this will be the first time Target is using the event to promote groceries. Its discounts will span Sunday through Tuesday — a day longer than the e-commerce giant's event. It's likely that Target sees the grocery category differently these days. Groceries were a key reason why Target's sales soared and its market share grew during the pandemic.
