According to firefighters, a component of the electrical grid malfunctioned, causing enough power to go out that businesses could not use their computer systems, forcing the stores to shut their doors early.

Among the businesses affected were Walmart, Sam's Club, Value City, Big Lots and Dollar Tree.

As of 8:30 p.m., electrical crews were still on the scene working.
