Wal-Mart CEO: Hispanics key "growth opportunity"

Interesting nugget in a interview with Wal-Mart CEO Lee Scott. He identified the Hispanic community as a "key growth opportunity" and that Wal-Mart was spending $45 million a year in Spanish-language advertising and building marketing events around events like World Cup soccer.

He is quoted in the article as saying:

"Right now Hispanics have a greater affinity for Wal-Mart than any identifiable segment of the U.S. population. Hispanic consumers are projected to hold about 10 percent, or $1 trillion, of U.S. consumers' buying power by 2010 and Wal-Mart is well-positioned to "capture a significant portion of this market."
