Shutters Come Down On Woolworths Across Australia After Nationwide Glitch

Several media outlets have reported that the outage was Australia-wide, and affected all stores, though Woolworths are yet to make a comment.

Trolleys abandoned at the Caneland Woolworths registers.

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

A Daily Mercury reporter at the scene said services had just been restored and customers were once again flowing through the registers.

Stores temporarily closed in response to the outage.

Seven News in Adelaide is reporting that some customers at a Woolworths store in Adelaide's west got their groceries for free after the nationwide outage.

A nationwide technical glitch forced Woolworths to halt trading this afternoon, with shutters coming down on stores across Australia.

The issue began affecting all registers across the country shortly after 4pm, leaving consumers with trolleys full of shopping but no way to pay.

The supermarket giant has not yet revealed the cause of the outage.
