Yesterday I posted about Target wiping it’s shelves clean of Kindles. Turns out that they’re just angry because they feel that those shelves were being used to be a showroom so people could play around with the Kindle and then go home, get on Amazon.com, and buy it there. Cheaper, no sales tax (for most places), and much easier. In their words:
What we aren’t willing to do is let online-only retailers use our brick-and-mortar stores as a showroom for their products and undercut our prices
Fair enough, Target. I’m going to have to agree with you there.
And Amazon – maybe it’s time to open up a B&M showroom yourself. If not a full-blown store, at least pop-up shop where people can play around with your hardware, and then order them straight from there.
