Target to axe Kindles from inventory

Stephanie Clifford and Julie Bosman:

Target, signaling its growing irritation with its rival Amazon, announced on Wednesday that it would stop selling the online retailer’s Kindle e-readers.

Target’s upset with Amazon for its “Price Check” app, which lets customers check prices of products on retailer store shelves. Target has accused Amazon of using “our brick-and-mortar stores as a showroom.”

    I can’t blame them. Why should they be buying units they probably can’t return that aren’t selling because folks are going to the website to get them from the source. THAT is likely just as much a reason as the whole Price Check thing.
