DJs snubs joint retail frenzy for one of its own making

ON the eve of Australia's biggest national online shopping event, David Jones has announced it is staging a rival one-day sale of its own.

However, its new website, which was launched just two weeks ago, was already hit with technical problems this morning.

A David Jones spokeswoman confirmed there was a "technical glitch" on the website that excluded shoppers from some promotions.

She denied that the problem was related to increased traffic flows, and said all parts of the site were now working.

"Even if the site is busy, it's designed in a way that will manage peak times," she said. "In many ways, this will be the first real test for our website."
