The destination registers seem to have dropped nationwide.
Buyers report long waiting times at the cash register in social media and leave their shops empty-handed on Saturday afternoon.  "We are aware of a system problem in the business and are working to fix it as soon as possible," Target tweeted from his @ AskTarget account in response to the customer tweets. "Thanks for your patience!"
According to a shopper in Columbia, Maryland, employees warned customers of the failure when they entered the store.
There have been many posts on Downdetector.com about stores that have encountered problems.
"Massive outage at @Target." All checkout systems have failed in several stores in our immediate area. I wonder how widespread this really is. #SaturdayMorning, " @TheQuietJorge tweeted .
