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

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.
