Shoppers trying to visit macys.com in the late morning and early afternoon on Black Friday, the second biggest shopping day of the year (after the Saturday before Christmas), were greeted with a “temporary shopping jam” message due to overflow shopping traffic. As of 2:25 p.m. E.T. on Friday, the site was still experiencing the problem.Forbes reported that was god news for other retailers:
Earlier on Friday, Adobe Digital Insights forecast digital revenues would rise 11.3% on Black Friday. As Fortune reported, Target and Kohl’s, both direct rivals to Macy’s, each reported record online sales on Thanksgiving.
Though a Macy’s spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a Fortune request for comment, she told CNBC, “We are currently experiencing high volume on our site, which has slowed traffic.” The spokeswoman added: “We are still taking a high volume of online orders, and we are working quickly to alleviate the delay issue which we hope to have resolved shortly.”Looks like Santa is gonna need a bigger sleigh.
