Sears debuts Latino social media channels

Hoffman Estates, Ill. - Sears Holding has launched Facebook.com/SearsLatino as well as its Twitter handle @SearsLatino as part of its marketing campaign geared toward Hispanic consumers around the country.
"The Latino market is a vitally important customer segment for us. Given its population growth and high adoption of social media, this is a natural extension of our online initiatives," said Oscar H. Castro, director/gm international e-commerce. "
Conversations take place in both English and Spanish on the Facebook page, the company said.
