NEW YORK – Macy’s wrestled with some technical issues on its website during one of the most crucial shopping days of the year.

Though early afternoon, many visitors to the site saw “Temporary shopping jam.”

Macy’s had a 10-second countdown to get to the site, though the delay often ran longer than that.

“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,” the company said.

Judging by its Twitter feed, lots of people were inconvenienced:
