This exciting launch will enhance the shopping experience for the brand’s Spanish speaking customers in the US and around the world by allowing her to shop in her own language anywhere, any time, from any place.
“Our Spanish speaking customers are among our most loyal and our research shows this customer group prefers to shop in their own language,” said Monica Mitro, Executive Vice President of Public Relations for Victoria’s Secret. “This is a wonderful opportunity for Victoria’s Secret to better serve an important market.”
Aside from allowing the brand to better serve its Spanish-speaking customers, this initiative also provides Victoria’s Secret with an opportunity to expand its international customer base.
