Advertising Campaigns: Transworld Entertainment

Albany, NY, based Transworld Entertainment, is going to increase its Hispanic Advertising Allocation in 2007. Trans World Entertainment Corporation is one of the largest specialty music and video retailers in the United States.

Most of Transworld Entertainment Hispanic advertising is done through Radio and Newspaper (FSI) advertising. Advertising is bought in-house and supports the launch of CD's by Hispanic singers or releases of Spanish-language videos.

Its stores are divided into two categories: mall-based and freestanding.
