+ - Department Store Chain's Website Crashes and Can't Get Back Up-> 1

Submitted by McGruber
McGruber (1417641) writes "Myer, Australia's largest department store chain, has closed its website ( "until further notice" at the height of the post-Christmas (and Australian summer) sales season.

The website crashed on Christmas Day and has been down ever since. This means Myer will see no benefit for those days from booming domestic online sales, which were tipped to hit $344 million across the retail sector on Boxing Day alone.

Teams from IBM and Myer's information technology division were "working furiously" to fix the problem."
