Target's website crashed on Cyber Monday much to the frustration of eager shoppers.

On Monday morning, their site brought up this error message. 

As of 11 a.m., the site seemed to be operational for most customers, but some still reported outages. 

Target sent the following statement to 7 Action News: As a part of our Cyber Week promotion, today for the first time, Target is offering 15 percent off virtually everything online. Both traffic and order volumes are exceeding Target’s Thursday Black Friday event, which was our biggest day ever for online sales. To help manage the volume, we have been metering traffic to the site. We have teams working diligently to restore to full functionality.
