Woolworths blames IT outage for checkout counters shutdown

Woolworths hit with technical outage, checkouts unable to process sales

A nationwide technical outage has left Woolworths supermarkets around the country unable to process any sales, with some closing their doors until the problem is resolved.

Woolworth's haven't made a statement yet, but they are replying to tweets explaining that registers "are now back online in all of our stores".

The supermarket's social media team responded to the complaints on Twitter by saying IT issues occurred.

Pictures taken from stores in Sydney and Melbourne show customers waiting at registers with trolleys full of food and groups of abandoned carts.

As usual, customers took to social media to vent their frustrations and test out their ability to come up with humorous short takes.

She was also ordered to have no contact with the victim or her family, or to visit Farris Court. "However, I pay all the bills". She said she didn't know what to do then, but it's obvious now: "That's when I should have left him, right there".

Shopper Sharni was among those asked to leave her groceries behind at the Hampton Park store in Melbourne.

"Registers are offline so customers are standing in queues with baskets of food that they can't buy", she said. "We apologise for any inconvenience caused". "We were all offered a box of chocolates". Good customer service would have been to let everyone now in the store have their trolley load for free.

News Corp Australia has contacted Woolworths for comment.

A technical issue has forced Woolworths shops across Australia to close.
