I live in between Galveston and Houston and I've noticed that we have a larger Hispanic food section compared to other Walmarts I've lived near, and near the pharmacy there are Hispanic versions of scrapes and burns creams. But, that's about it. I like it, though. The Hispanic brands are always cheaper so I typically buy them.

I haven't noticed if they do. The thing that would come to my attention if they did is there is a walmart in a neighboring city that every time I stop by there, I notice a clear Muslim population. Which seems odd to me, it's kind of random, not sure why they are drawn there, there is a very small population of Muslims anywhere else. But I've never seen any... Indian food? Sorry, don't know a lot about them, but it's all the same foods as the other Walmarts.

Not really. I live in AZ, with a huge Mexican population, and every Walmart I've ever been in has had less than 1/2 an aisle for hispanic food.



Makes sense though, if it sells, sell more of it.

Its called good business ... there's no point in carrying items that aren't going to sell.

Smart buyers for stores know their customer demographic and get those items on the shelves.

What does that mean? Food stamps go as far in Target where I am at.




We have a large asian population so we get all the cute food and yummy treats.

Really? I live smack dab in the middle of Houston and Galveston and all I've seen are the typical brands. Of course, I've lived in the area my whole life so maybe it's more than the rest of the country, but to me the Hispanic foods/brands is minimal. Maybe I'm just used to it.

Lol I used to work at the Kemah Boardwalk all last year and the year before. Howdy neighbor! Haha.
Yeah, I've never lived anywhere else except the Houston area, grew up in La Porte and lived in Pearland before moving to League City. And they all have about the same amount of selection of Hispanic items. And yeah, I guess if up north they only have two shelves of Hispanic products, then I guess we do have more than the norm. lol

Target is priced easily 25% more than Walmart.

No Walmart in my hometown (a small hippie island that does not want Walmart coming in), but on various roadtrips through Florida, there is some major differences in the Walmarts in the urban area's and the redneck areas's. Florida is kinda wierd in that the socio-economic and cultural demographics vary wildly depending on what area of the state you are in.
