Hi Fellow Fools,

TGT, WMT and BBY continue to fight the trend of showrooming that seems to be sweeping through retail like a wildfire.

In an interview with Slate, Wal-Mart CEO Mike Duke reveals Wal-Mart is planning initiatives to combat showrooming. These include allowing customers to order online and either pick up your order in the store the same day (which is an option for shoppers now) or have it delivered to you the same day from the local store. Also, as I previously reported, several major retailers including Wal-Mart have announced an initiative to develop their own mobile payment network, including mobile apps and digital wallet.
