Target website experiences high traffic on Cyber Monday

Target.com, Target’s retailer website, couldn’t handle the online traffic as shoppers sought for the best deals.

The site was up and down beginning around 10:00 AM Monday, according to Catchpoint Systems, that observe the performance of the website. Shoppers got a message asking them to “hold tight”.

Target has set up a virtual line for customers, giving people access to the site gradually in order to control traffic, says Katie Boylan, a spokeswoman for Target.

Target provided 40 pages of Cyber Monday Ads for the shoppers to avail during CyberMonday. Target provides 30 % apparel, accessories & shoes for women, men and kids. Most of the Cyber Monday deals at Target were discounted 15 % off.

“Target.com is not down,” said Molly Snyder, spokeswoman for Target. “We continue to receive and process thousands of orders from guests who are shopping the entire site and taking advantage of the discount coupled with free shipping. We apologize to guests who experience any delays, we appreciate their patience, and encourage them to try again in a few minutes by refreshing their browser.”
