Amazon was dealt a blow today, when a New Jersey Court ruled that Toys 'R' Us could void a 10-year agreement that had the online retailer running their internet operations. The basis for Toys 'R' Us' complaint was that Amazon, by allowing independent retailers to sell toys on the site, wasn't upholding a promise of exclusivity in the toy department. At the time this case emerged, it seemed that Amazon would be just fine if the troubled toy-seller decided to leave. What a difference two years makes. Today there are serious doubts, after all this time, as to whether the company's core retailing business is even profitable. After losing Toys 'R' Us, and last year The Gap, the company's main money-making division may be in serious trouble. Besides, who needs a convenient centralized shopping site anymore, when you can now go shopping from the edge.
