Glitch at Target Stores Causes Long Checkout Lines

Target(NEW YORK) -- Twitter and other social media sites lit up on Sunday as Target customers complained about long delays at checkout lines.

Cash registers at several U.S. stores were not working.

"Target has identified an issue impacting checkout at some of our U.S. stores. The glitch is causing delays at some checkouts," Target said in a statement. The retailer noted, however, that the glitch was "not in any way related to a security issue."

As you may recall, the Minneapolis-based company was hit by a big security breach late last year in which thieves stole personal data from tens of millions of customers’ credit and debit cards.

Early Monday morning, Target tweeted that the issue had been resolved.

"Thanks for your patience. We've resolved the issue that impacted service at our check-out lanes. Once again, we sincerely apologize," the retailer said.
