Target going in-house for e-commerce

Target, the second-largest discount retailer in the United States, has announced that it will bring its e-commerce website, Target.com, in-house in time for the 2011 holiday season.

Since 2001, Target.com has been run in partnership with Amazon.com. The e-commerce giant’s platform powers the Target.com website and Amazon.com handles much of the call center and fulfillment operations.
