TargetMINNEAPOLIS-Target’s website had some cyber problems on Cyber Monday.

High traffic volume on the discount retailer’s website yesterday left the site temporarily inaccessible to shoppers at times, according to reports. As a result, the company metered traffic and put customers in a queue, requesting their patience and encouraging them to refresh their browsers, the reports said.

Target did not respond to HFN’s request for comment.
