Frugalista Stampede Crashes Target's Website

A horde of foamy-mouthed "frugalistas" took down the website of corporate megalith Target for several hours this morning, when Italian knitwear brand Missoni launched its 400-piece "Missoni for Target" collection. I won't lie, I am not above this. I, too, visited Target.com this morning, seeking a pair of zig-zag patterened shoes I saw in the Missoni for Target lookbook. My greed for reasonably priced footwear crashed Target.com.

Racked reports that the desperate among us can circumvent the crash by using Target's mobile site. But are you really ready to sink that? [AP, Bits, Racked]
