Target restores in-store purchases following 2-hour disruption

June 16, 2019

Target's point-of-sale systems were back up and running after a 2-hour disruption on Saturday that left customers unable to make purchases, according to a post on Twitter from the company.

Target apologized for the outage, saying was the result of an "internal technology issue" that temporarily halted retail transactions.

"After an initial, but thorough review, we can confirm that this was not a data breach or a security related issue, and no guest information was compromised at any time," the company said.

Target said it appreciated all the help provided by store associates for helping guests and thanked everyone for being patient as they addressed the outage.

Online transactions were not impacted by the disruption, according to a spokesperson.
