Target registers down in stores around the country, customers report on social media

(WLS) — Shoppers in Target stores around the country are reporting long lines due to an apparent computer outage impacting the store’s cash registers.

The outage appears to have begun around 2 p.m. ET, according to customer tweets on social media. Some customers said the outage was impacting all cash registers in the store, but others said some locations still had one or two open registers.

Target said in a tweet that it was “aware that guests are currently unable to make purchases at Target stores.” The retailer said it was troubleshooting the situation and apologized for the inconvenience but did not elaborate on what might have caused the outage.

One customer in North Carolina who spoke to us on Twitter said she had been stuck in line for 90 minutes, a sentiment echoed by other shoppers on social media.
