The customers started browsing the website to look for colorful fabrics and designs even before their 8am opening. Although we can say that the website was down and it is really bad, but at the same time we can say that there were many sales.

Target rep Joshua Thomas told WSJ that when the traffic got heavier, they made their website inaccessible. He said that his company realizes that there is an extreme amount of excitement around this collaboration and his company also apologizes to any disappointed guests.

When their website stopped, their shopping application also stopped. There were a lot of customers that waiting outside of Target for the store to open on Sunday morning. Target were initially reporting to launch the Lilly Pulitzer collection sale at 3am.
