Fred Meyer West closed by computer glitch

A computer software problem caused a temporary closure of the fred meyer west store on airport way today.Last night, they started installing a software update, and it apparently caused a problem with the stores network.

That left cash registers not working, so they had to delay opening the store today until they could get it fixed.

People showing up at freds were finding an almost empty parking lot, with store employees telling them about the problem. The problem was fixed and the store reopened at 1:45 this afternoon.
