INITIAL: MAYHEM has erupted at Woolworths stores across the Mackay region as a national technical outage shuts down stores.

Frustrated customers took to social media to vent being forced to abandon their mission or line up with little indication of how long they will have to wait to pay for their shopping.

Staff at one of the affected stores at Sydney's Town Hall confirmed the outage meant customers were left with no choice but leave without purchases.

Social media posts indicate stores impacted locally include Walkerston and Caneland Central.

A security guard was also stationed at the closed doors to turn shoppers away.

"The registers are now coming back online in our stores. We apologise for any inconvenience caused".

The supermarket giant has taken to Twitter to confirm the IT issue has since been resolved.
