Retailers Named for Excellence in Hispanic Marketing

Six retailers in five categories will receive 2008 Hispanic Retail Excellence Awards later this month at the fourth annual Hispanic Retail 360 summit, being held July 28-30 in Miami.

The award winners and categories at this year’s event are:
  • Grocery: Jewel/Osco and Hy-Vee (a tie)
  • Mass Retail: Target Stores
  • Convenience Stores: 7-Eleven
  • Drug Stores: Longs Drugs
  • Specialty Retail: Best Buy

The awards, based on a poll of more than 1,000 Hispanic-focused retailer and supplier executives, including members of conference’s 22-company retailer advisory board, is designed to recognize leadership among retailers targeting the growing Latino population. 

Nominators were asked to write in the name of a nominee in each of six classifications (Drug Stores, Convenience Stores, Grocery, Mass Retail, Specialty Stores and Department Stores) that “has done the most in the past year to win the hearts, minds and spending dollars of Hispanic consumers.”
The advisory board, representing retailers with more than 42,000 stores and more than $190 billion in annual revenue, also heavily influenced the content of the conference program. The board includes retailers from across all channels of retailing and foodservice such as ExxonMobil, Giant Eagle, McDonald’s Corp., Minyards, SuperValu, and Winn-Dixie. The full list of advisory board members and updated agenda may be viewed online at

Last year’s winner of the Hispanic Retail Excellence Award was Phoenix-based Bashas’ Food City. The 2006 winner was Anaheim-based JAX Markets and the 2005 winner was Pros Ranch Market, which operates Hispanic market stores in southern California and four in Phoenix, Ariz.
