If you’re heading to Loblaw grocery stores this evening to do your shopping, the company is warning customers its debit system is down.

“We are currently experiencing an issue with the Loblaw grocery stores’ network system,” the company said in a statement to Global News.

“Our customers are unable to use debit to pay for groceries, however in most cases we can still accept credit (limit varies by store) or cash.”
