they are leaving quicker than they showed up i suppose.

this also has to do with the economy being the way it is. business are suffering everywhere.

further, not all hispanics shop at the same places or look for the same products. [spanish] brand loyalty might be greater amongst recent arrivals as opposed to people who have been here longer. again, in places where the hispanic population has been around for longer/generations, you see the differnces amongst this group. its hard to generalize about hispanics in that sense.
Of course not all Hispanics like the same goods but it is not a stretch to say that most Hispanics relate to the same cultural foods and goods and go where they can buy them and that was my point.

and i was saying that you can take 5 different hispanic families and each one will differ in shopping habits, based predominantly on factors like class, acculturation, language economics and even region. i know hispanic families that dont even eat "hispanic" foods. lots shop at costco and buy microwavable food. others eat fast food everyday. some only eat beans and rice (which varies depending on country). you would be suprised.
