Retailers are forming alliances in order to boost sales.  Kohl's shoppers can test Amazon devices at some of its stores, and also return items they purchased through the online retailer.  Additionally, Nike has made some of its sneakers available and Sears is selling its Kenmore-branded appliances on the site, while Best Buy has teamed up with Amazon for voice shopping.  Walmart is building a coalition of its own, purchasing smaller online brands and becoming the highest-profile partner to Google in voice shopping.  The discount retailer has also announced a web partnership with high-end department store Lord & Taylor.
