A series of events at six stores across the country will bring to
life the rich legacy of achievement and entertainment of Hispanic
Americans in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This fall, Macy’s is once again set to honor the rich legacy and
cultural impact of Hispanic Americans, during its annual Hispanic
Heritage Month celebrations. Customers nationwide will have the
opportunity to attend special in-store events focused on exploring and
exalting Hispanic and Latino culture, in particular the impact Latinas
have had on entertainment. Helping Macy’s celebrate will be celebrity
guest, Gaby Espino. Espino is a renowned actress and television host who
has had leading roles in 17 telenovelas watched in more than 90
countries. The spirited in-store events will explore the art of the
telenovela and highlight how it has become a staple of Spanish language
entertainment and a genre that has had the ability to capture the
attention of multiple generations. Macy’s and Gaby Espino will host
cross–generational, in-depth conversations around Hispanic Heritage that
celebrate the future while paying tribute to the past.
“Macy’s is honored to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with our
customers and associates every year,” said Kristyn Doar-Page, Macy’s
vice president of Diversity Strategies. “We believe it is important to
support the communities we serve and recognize the many contributions
Latinos have made over generations, achievements that are an integral
part of American culture today. We are excited to welcome Gaby Espino to
our stores for fun dialogues on the role of telenovelas in both
entertainment and as a core component of Hispanic family life.”
Gaby Espino is an actress, television host, leading Latina influencer,
and Venezuelan native. Espino has spent years in the international
spotlight, starring in dozens of telenovelas and films. In addition to
her leading roles, she has hosted the Latin Billboard Music Awards,
presented at Premios Tu Mundo and launched a lifestyle channel Mi
Vida, Mi Estil. Espino also has a large social media presence, with
more than 18 million followers worldwide.
“It is an honor to partner with such an inspiring company that is so
involved with the community and with such a great commitment to
promoting and spreading culture and all of the aspects that make each
important,” Espino said. “I am grateful to represent the Latino/Hispanic
community and to be able to take part in Macy’s mission to celebrate
Hispanic Heritage Month.”
