From CNN this morning. Walmart enlists help from Japan in fight with Amazon. America's biggest retail chain said late Thursday it would start selling e-books and audiobooks online for the first time later this year.
The shift will bring the company into even closer competition with Amazon (AMZN), which started out as an internet bookseller but has grown into all-encompassing retail giant, both online and offline.
Walmart's (WMT) move into an established Amazon business is part of a broader alliance with Rakuten (RKUNF), Japan's largest ecommerce company.
