iStock/Thinkstock(CHICAGO) -- Walgreen's pharmacies nationwide were unable to fill prescriptions for part of the day Friday due to a technical problem.

A spokesman says Walgreen's was performing a maintenance update of the prescription database when they encountered a technical problem.   

They were forced bring the retail pharmacy system offline, impacting all 8,200 pharmacies nationwide.

The company didn't say how many customers were impacted while the problem was being fixed.  

The Illinois-based drug store announced after 1pm CT that all the pharmacies were back up and running.
