Can Wal-Mart be even more Hispanic? They’re going to try…

  • The staff will also be bilingual.
  • Several leading regional US supermarket chains already operate Hispanic store brands, including Publix in Florida, which operates three Publix Sabor markets, and HEB in Texas, which opened a Mi Tienda store in Houston in 2006.
  • The markets include elements such as cafés serving Latino pastries and coffee, and full service meat and fish counters.
  • Leading retailers are also pursuing Hispanic consumers online, with Best Buy and Home Depot having launched Spanish-language versions of their e-commerce sites in recent months.
