Target Corp. said Tuesday it will open a store at www.amazon.com this fall to offer thousands of clothing, home, electronics and jewelry products.

The companies also said Amazon.com will fill orders and provide customer service on Target's current online sales sites, including target.com, MarshallFields.com, Mervyns.com and GiftCatalog.com, beginning in Summer 2002. Target will continue to own the online properties.

Under the five-year alliance, Amazon.com will receive per unit fees and annual fixed fees.

"We're always looking to expand selection for our customers, and this strategic partnership with a leading retailer like Target hits the bulls-eye," said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and chief executive.
