Target stores are going "Nooks Only."
Target Corp., the second largest U.S. discount chain, will stop selling Amazon.com Inc.’s Kindle brand of e-readers and tablets after two years, while continuing to offer similar products from Apple Inc. and Barnes & Noble Inc.
The Nook brand of e-readers and tablets is made by Barnes & Noble and sold in Target’s stores and through its e-commerce site. Target, based in Minneapolis, also offers Apple’s iPad online and in stores. All Kindles and related products will be out of stores by the end of this month, a spokesperson said.
