Kroger itself confirmed the incident about  2 p.m. “Our EBT system was down for a short period of time,” the Cincinnati-based retailer said. “It is now fixed and working properly.”

Kroger has more than 4,000 stores across the country.

Social media was awash with complaints.

What Kroger’s in looks like at 1 pm on Christmas Eve when the registers go down and only cash accepted. Guy who seemed to be in charge said it’s systemwide. But the computers started functioning correctly intermittently

Turns out there is a systemwide computer outage at Fry’s/Kroger stores nationwide! They are accepting cash only at the registers, although the system would come back online intermittently. It was a bit chaotic.

Customers were having to pay cash instead of using their credit cards.

So I’m at Kroger’s like a crazy person and apparently 5/3 systems are down nationwide and it’s cash or check only…

Credit system is down at Kroger. Lesson learned. Next time carry enough cash or a checkbook.
