Target stores across the country experienced a system outage on Saturday afternoon.
Target confirmed the issue via Twitter writing “We’re aware that guests are currently unable to make purchases at Target stores. Our teams are troubleshooting now and we apologize for the inconvenience. We will provide an update as soon as possible.”
Within just a couple hours of that announcement, they had everything fixed.
Target is now apologizing for the inconvenience. Their post said the outage was just a technology glitch, not a security risk or hack of some sort.
