Target Nationwide Computer Outage Leaves Thousands Of Shoppers Stranded At Checkout

A line of shopping carts ready for business are seen at a Target store in downtown Brooklyn

It's not clear how many Target stores have been affected or the reason for the issue.

Shoppers took to social media to share pictures of long lines in stores across the U.S.

A similar issue hit Target stores in 2014.

According to Target's customer service Twitter account, the company is aware of the problem and attempting to fix the issue.

Many shoppers are using the hashtag #Targetdown to express the inconvenience.

FCC to allow mobile carriers to automatically block robocalls
Although Rosenworcel is strongly pushing for this to be free across all phone companies, there is still a chance that it will be. He also said that "based on public input" the FCC will determine if a rule to make blocking free would be appropriate.

Target did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but the store's official Twitter account confirmed that customers could not make purchases at the chain's stores.

The website has a heat map that shows Target outages from coast-to-coast, including Alabama.

Target, which has more than 1,800 stores across the US, said it would "provide an update as soon as possible".

People shopping were reportedly told by Target employees to come back later. "It's not the local employees' fault, so please, be patient and kind", said another.

"To my fellow target employees, stay strong in this dark time".
