Today Staples announced that they will begin selling Amazon’s line of Kindle ebook readers and Kindle accessories at all of their 1550+ retail locations in the US later this fall.
Staples already sells the Aluratek Libre and they used to sell the Sony Readers, but currently only list Sony Reader accessories now that Sony is getting set to unveil their new line of devices tomorrow.
Staples is the second major retail chain store to sell the Amazon Kindle. Target just started carrying them a few months back, although all the displays that I’ve seen looked pretty shabby, and they only had the 6-inch Kindle and very few accessories.
Briefly, J&R listed the new Kindles on their website, but that only lasted for about 1 week before they disappeared. There was never any official announcement, so who knows if they still have them in retail stores or not.
