Abstract

Purpose: The Hispanic population is growing at a rate five times that of the general population and will be the largest ethnic seg-ment in the U.S. within ten years. Fashion-ori-ented businesses need to understand the purchase behaviors of this segment and determine opportunities for capturing their purchases across multiple fashion product categories. This study examined the frequency of acquisi-tion source use by Anglo and Hispanic female consumers when purchasing casual apparel and casual home furnishings.
