WM has 27% of Toy Market

Independent toy stores not the hardest hit--yet. The Washington Times reprints a UPI story:

Howard L. Davidowitz, chairman of national retail consultant Davidowitz & Associates, estimated Wal-Mart now controls 27 percent of the toy market, the Washington Post reported Monday.

Most of that market share has been taken from big toy stores, but increasingly independent toy stores are losing market share to Wal-Mart, too.
