Amazon Toys Walmart Target

Amazon Toys Walmart Target, The number of out-of-stock toys is increasing at the websites of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Target Corp. and Sears Holdings Corp.’s Kmart chain while Amazon.com Inc. remains almost fully stocked, according to a Bloomberg Industriesanlysis.
Wal-Mart, the world’s largest retailer, was missing 34 percent of 116 toys tracked as of Dec. 7, up from 16 percent a month ago, according to a report led by Poonam Goyal, a Bloomberg Industriesanlyst. Out-of-stock items totaled 46 percent at Target’s website, 23 percent at Kmart and 29 percent at Toys “R” Us. Amazon didn’t have two of the 116 toys.
The data highlights Amazon’s advantage in e-commerce because it also sells the goods of other retailers through its site, so it is more likely to have items in stock, Goyal said. That will train shoppers to rely more on Amazon to find in- demand items, she said.
“These retailers risk their consumers migrating to another retailer,” Goyal said in an interview. These chains haven’t managed their inventory well because being out-of-stock this early means they are missing out on sales, Goyal said.
