It hit about half of Woolworths' 995 Australian stores for a short time on Monday afternoon, the supermarket giant said in a statement.

Staff at one store confirmed the outage meant customers were left with no choice but to leave without purchases.

Shortly after the outage, Woolworths said all registers were back online and apologised for the inconvenience.
