The new store will target Hispanics from the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Cuba with such specific products as hair care products, beer, nectar drinks, and more. Navarro’s signature products for Hispanics also available in the store include Café La Llave Expresso coffee and Fabuloso multi-purpose cleaner plus popular brands such as Valentini, El Sembrador and La Fe.
