The leak of Target customers’ personal information is being called the second-largest breech in U.S. history, just behind a similar situation involving the parent company of T.J. Maxx in 2007. At Target, about 40 million shoppers could have had their credit card numbers or other personal information compromised.

But at the Target in Cuyahoga Falls, it was brisk business as usual. Regular customer Ulrike Vorhauer from Brimfield says she won’t stop shopping at Target despite the inconvenience.

“I just got a new credit card. New number. I am not really worried. I didn’t want to go to the hassle. If something is happening, then you just have to monitor it. But I don’t really want to."

Target is offering free credit monitoring, and all shoppers got a 10 percent discount over the weekend. The retailer says it's had few reports of fraud and is adding workers to field customer complaints.
