Minneapolis - Target took the honors today of being the first third-party retailer to carry the Kindle.
The e-reader will be sold at Target's flagship Minneapolis location starting on April 25, along with 102 south Florida stores and one store in Washington state, according to Joshua Thomas, a spokesman for Target.
The Kindle will retail for $259 and will be shown on an interactive display, Thomas told TWICE. "It will be on a tethering system," he said, "and you will be able to experience the product as you wouldn't be able to online."
Steve Kessel, Amazon Kindle senior VP, said in a statement, "Target's reputation for excellence and value makes it the perfect fit for Kindle. We're excited to work with them to bring readers around the country a new way to discover and buy Kindle, and with it, wireless access to a massive selection of over 500,000 books."
