Another day, another Target checkout outage.
Many took to social media to complain that checkouts at the retail giant went down for a second day in a row. Many stores were only taking cash and gift cards. It comes after Target suffered a global point-of-sale machine outage on Saturday. Checkouts were down for more than two hours.
Target said in a statement yesterday that it could “confirm that this was not a data breach or security-related issue” and “no guest information was compromised at any time.” Instead, the company blamed the outage on an “internal technology issue” without disclosing specifics.
The retail giant was forced to pay $162 million in expenses related to a data breach in 2013.
A spokesperson for Target didn’t immediately return a request for comment. We’ll update once we know more.
