Amazon Joins Target In Not Selling Beyonce's Album

[GrioReport] Target made headlines last week when they said they wouldn’t be carrying the pop star’s latest, citing her decision to release the LP exclusively on iTunes first as the reason.

Now Amazon.com is following Target’s lead.

Although physical sales of albums are on the decline, they still sell, so it’s surprising that these big name entities would elect to miss out on potential profits from the critically acclaimed, hit album.

Still, Beyoncé fans can take heart that Wal-Mart stores will carry the CD, a gesture that was not lost on the “Partition” singer, who made a personal appearance at one of their stores this week.

“We’re gonna do whats right for the customer. Our customers obviously love Beyoncé and we want to make sure we have it in stores… and it will be on this Friday,” Wal-Mart spokesperson Sarah McKinney told theGrio. “We’re releasing the album in approximately 4,000 stores nationwide. Our customers love Beyoncé so we’re excited to be able to offer them her new album. I’m sure it will be a top gift this Christmas.”
