NEW YORK (AP) - Big retailers said they would start to pull Confederate flags, and merchandise bearing the flag, from their store shelves and websites this week. The announcements come as debate over the flag’s symbolism was reignited following last week’s shooting deaths of nine black church members in South Carolina.

These retailers have announced bans of the flag and related items:

- Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

- Amazon.com Inc.

- Sears Holdings Corp.

- EBay Inc.

- Etsy Inc.

- Target Corp.

- Spencer Gifts
