Appliance and consumer electronics retailer Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will sell computer components so that consumer can build their own computer in more than one-third of its U.S. locations, according to Reuters.

Currently, the retailer only offers prepackaged bundles of personal computers and accessories. With the build-your-own-computer counters, shoppers can now choose their own. Components include central processing units, as well as monitors, keyboards and mice that combine to create customized packages.

The retailer began testing the computer counters in about 20 locations last year, and is now introducing them in 1,200 of its 3,200 U.S. locations, spokeswoman Jolanda Stewart told Reuters. It expects to offer the merchandise in approximately 1,400 stores by the end of 2006.
