BENTONVILLE, Ark. — Wal-Mart Stores here has cut 1,000 titles from the list of magazines stores can carry, a spokeswoman confirmed.
While the percentage of titles this represents could not be verified, one industry source said the titles represented about half of “authorized” titles stores can carry. Not all authorized titles are merchandised in stores. Therefore, the pulled titles represented 5% of copies going into the stores and 3% of sales to consumers.
