Thinking of spending Saturday cruising the isles of Target for items, think again as outage has impacted stores across the nation. Target is currently working on the issue and has released no information on the cause.

Here is what Target put out Saturday:

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

The Target “outage” is now over. Here is what they released on their website.

MINNEAPOLISTarget’s registers are fully back online and guests are able to purchase their merchandise again in all stores. The temporary outage earlier today was the result of an internal technology issue that lasted for approximately two hours. Our technology team worked quickly to identify and fix the issue, and we apologize for the inconvenience and frustration this caused for our guests. After an initial but thorough review, we can confirm that this was not a data breach or security-related issue, and no guest information was compromised at any time. We appreciate all of our store team members who worked quickly to assist guests and thank everyone involved for their patience.

Check back for updates.
