With posts written in Spanish, the dedicated page welcomes fans from all backgrounds and establishes a new way for Winn-Dixie to connect with Latinos –celebrating their passion for family, food and culture.
“Following the successful launch of our general market Facebook page, we wanted to create an online community for our Hispanic shoppers to gather and share information that is most important to them,” said Carlos Gil, manger of social media, Winn-Dixie Stores. “With the launch of our Latino Facebook fan page, we’re more socially connected than ever and are able to engage consumers, sharing all that Winn-Dixie has to offer across many audiences.”
The new site aims to take the conversation online and engage consumers through the sharing of relevant content including recipes, in-store events, new store openings and exclusive value deals, such as Winn-Dixie’s Make-A-Meal and What-A-Deal promotions.
