Retailer Wal-Mart Stores has said that it will stop selling Amazon.com’s Kindle Fire tablet and Kindle e-readers in a bid sever links with the online major which has been posing stronger challenge to the traditional retailer.
In May 2011, Amazon revealed that Kindle 3G and Kindle with Special Offers devices would be available in over 3,200 Wal-Mart stores throughout the US.
In a memo sent to store managers Wal-Mart said that the retailer has recently made the business decision to not carry Amazon tablets and eReaders beyond its existing inventory and purchase commitments.
Other retail chains like Best Buy, Staples and RadioShack plan to continue selling Kindle devices despite growing competition with Amazon.
