I don't think it's very important, except at the margins. People looking for a kindle are, obviously, people who can buy online, so I don't think the absence of a B&M retailer will be a big deal.
The exception might be for people who are buying the K. as a gift - while the giftee may be comfortable with ordering online, the giftor may not be. Still, I don't think a Kindle is really an impulse present.
