Default grocery languages

Here in Texas, it seems just about all the products available in the grocery store are labelled in English and Spanish. I've bought some hair products that are english and french (canadian french)..

Do all stores around the USA stock bi-lingual products?

A fair amount in California, at least in So. California have both English and Spanish. I would think the companies would use the labels nationwide for consistency but who knows.

Not just groceries, toys, electrical items and some tools are also labelled in American and Mexican languages.

Even here in Washington the signage in shops is in English and Spanish. Without ever having had a Spanish lesson I now know how to say toilets, exit, entrance, we don't accept checks, and many more things in Spanish.

You might see English labels in the speciality isle, usually they have a US compliant sticker on top.

I often use French to self check out in Home Depot.
