We live in challenging times for retail markets. Manufacturers, marketers, and large and small retailers both large and small--all share concerns for the future. How do manufacturers expand market share? How do retailers serve consumers and increase their bottom line?

The answers lie in the growth market of the future the multicultural market. Ethnic shoppers comprise the fastest-growing consumer group in the country. African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asians now represent 25 percent of the U.S. population, a figure that is increasing steadily.
