WOOLWORTHS WIPEOUT: Supermarkets forced to close across the country as nationwide IT failure causes register

Woolworths hit with technical outage, checkouts unable to process sales

By 5pm, Woolworths tweeted that all registers were back online and apologised for the outage.

Supermarket giant Woolworths has confirmed that an IT outage has caused stores to close across the country.

Shortly after 4pm, the issue began affecting all registers across the country.

Social media posts indicate stores impacted locally include Walkerston and Caneland Central.

The outage has also shut down entire stores.

"Shoppers have been told to leave groceries in baskets in the aisle", one customer from Brisbane wrote on Twitter.




A NATIONAL technical outage halted trading at Woolworths stores, causing chaos for shoppers as their trolleys bank up and some stores closed.

Registers have shut down with stores unable to make sales.

According to multiple reports, Woolworths supermarkets around Australia are experiencing a technical issue that prevents them from processing any transactions.

"Our systems ultimately self-corrected themselves and we were back and open for trade across most stores by 4:30pm, with all stores now operational".

An IT glitch has hit about half Woolworth's 995 supermarkets in Australia. "We apologise for any inconvenience caused".

The ABC reached out to Woolworths for comment.
