Wal-Mart will no longer carry Amazon’s Kindle devices beyond commitments it has already made to do so, according to a report by Reuters.
The company said that the move was part of its overall merchandising strategy but it might have also been motivated by Wal-Mart’s desire to compete more aggressively in the online retail space that Amazon dominates. Every new Kindle Fire owner is potentially another Amazon.com shopper.
