Registers have reportedly shut down at all Woolworths stores across Australia due to a technical outage.

Signs were put up at a number of Woolworths stores apologising for the problem.

Stores temporarily closed in response to the outage.

Shopper Sharni was among those asked to leave her groceries behind at the Hampton Park store in Melbourne.

"Registers are offline so customers are standing in queues with baskets of food that they can't buy", she said.

As of 4:50pm AEST, a Woolworths spokesperson has confirmed that services have returned to normal.

"We can confirm that an IT issue impacted registers in some of our supermarkets for a short period of time this afternoon", the spokesperson said. "We apologise for any inconvenience caused".

Social media posts have revealed shoppers are banked up in stores with their trolleys, unable to move.

Shortly after 4pm, the issue began affecting all registers across the country.

Several media outlets have reported that the outage was Australia-wide, and affected all stores, though Woolworths are yet to make a comment.

Woolworths has apologised after a technical glitch knocked out thousands of registers across the nation for close to an hour, forcing some stores to shut.
