Amazon To Power Wal-Mart Online?

from the big-deals dept

There’s a rumor going around that Amazon has worked out a deal similar to the one they have with Toys R Us, but this time they would power Wal-Mart’s online store. This would obviously be a huge deal. Wal-Mart has had troubles again and again (and again) in launching a successful online site. At the same time Amazon is often called the “online Wal-Mart”. Of course, the two companies have had legal difficulties in the past (Amazon was accused of stealing operations people from Wal-Mart). However, a deal like this certainly could help both companies. Both companies had no comment on the rumors, though.
