Some Target stores close for technical glitch, Saturday

(NBC) — Registers at Target stores are back up and running, after some stores across the nation closed on Saturday due to a technical glitch.

The glitch prevented cashiers from scanning merchandise causing massive lines at its stores worldwide and frustrating shoppers.

The company closed some stores rather than risk further aggravating people.

Target says the outage lasted about two hours and blamed the problem on an ‘internal technology issue.’

“We were just shopping around and there was an overhead page that said all the systems were down in target and nobody could buy anything, so they were going to close the store,” Target shopper Katie Bryant said.

Target says the glitch was not a data breach and no guest information was compromised.
