A system outage that affected Target stores across the country also impacted stores in San Diego.
On Sunday, Twitter started buzzing about widespread outages at Target checkout counters.
At the Sports Arena location, a sign was posted that read: Our Debit and Credit system is down. Cash and Check Payments are accepted. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Target spokesperson Molly Snyder released the following statement Sunday evening:
Target has identified an issue impacting checkout at some of our U.S. stores. The glitch is causing delays at some checkouts, but is not in any way related to a security issue. We apologize to anyone impacted, and we are working with guests in stores where the issue has not yet been resolved to accommodate their needs. We will provide updates as they are available.
Some Target customers had their confidence shaken after a cyber attack stole some 40 million card numbers last December.
