Target: registers online after previous failure | WBNS-10TV Columbus, Ohio

Published on:


Target's registries are back online after a crash that has affected several stores across the country, the company said on Saturday.

The company had tweeted earlier about the outage, saying that she was aware and that she was solving the problem.

The target located on Olentangy River Road confirmed at 10TV that they were experiencing registry problems but could not give more information.

The company said that this failure was not a data breach or a security issue.

Target's records are fully online again and customers can purchase their merchandise again in all stores. The temporary breakdown earlier in the day was the result of an internal technology problem that lasted for about two hours. Our technology team worked quickly to identify and resolve the problem, and we apologize for the inconvenience and frustration caused to our guests. After an initial but thorough review, we can confirm that it was neither a data breach nor a security issue, and that no information of any kind whatsoever. Guest was not compromised at any time. We appreciate all the members of our store team who have worked quickly to help customers and thank everyone involved for their patience.

#targetdown was a hot topic on Twitter about blackouts.
