I saw no other articles on this but Reuters was right. How they knew that is a slight mystery. Bloomberg Businessweek reported last night that "Target announced the expansion May 17 and executives discussed it on a conference call two days later. "
Bloomberg Businessweek' Joseph Galante goes on to say:
'The Kindle will go on sale in Target’s 1,740 U.S. outlets on June 6, said Joshua Thomas, a spokesman for the chain. The move expands a pilot program that Amazon.com, the largest online retailer, started last month in 103 Target stores.
. . .
“We’re currently the exclusive bricks-and-mortar retailer for this popular e-reader which practically flew off the shelves during our 100-store test,” Kathryn Tesija, Target’s executive vice president for merchandising, said last week on the call.
. . .
The Kindle sells for $259 and isn’t available in other stores. The device will be displayed prominently at the front of aisles in the electronics section [and] will be available for customers to handle, Thomas said. '
