Wal-Mart Or Target As Possible eToys Buyers

from the fire-sale dept

eToys stock jumped quite a bit today on rumors of a deal to sell the company to Wal-Mart or Target. I think it would be an interesting match, but I’m not sure if it would actually help either company. Both retailers are trying to expand their internet presence, but I’m not sure that figuring out how to integrate with an entirely different legacy system is the way to go.
