An employee of the chain's North Buffalo store, contacted by the Buffalo News, said at 3 pm that the store's records began to slow down about 30 minutes ago, but they are still usable.
Well, avoid the target in the orchard park. I do not even know where the lines end and all the registers are down. 😒

Two other users reported problems at the store located on Niagara Falls Boulevard in Amherst at about the same time.
Identify what's happening in Target right now, but this was the first time I'd been going in and out. These lines were like Black Friday lines. No thanks, it can wait. 👀
