WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- With Christmas less than a week away, would shoppers abandon Target after news of a security breach?

Apparently not as a lot of shoppers said they still used their credit cards at the Target in Waynesboro Friday.

The store had a packed parking lot and the automatic door hardly had time to close before it had to open again due to the steady stream of shoppers in and out.

Many shoppers said the news of the breach is not impacting their Christmas shopping plans.

"Today I used my Target card. This is not an advertisement, but I always pay with a credit card. Plenty of customers in there. Doesn't seem to be bothering many people," said Charles Salembier, a Target shopper.

Up to 40 million credit and debit card numbers and other information might have been taken by hackers.

So far no cases have been reported at the Target in Waynesboro or Harrisonburg.
