Is H-E-B trying to take on the likes of Amazon? The Texas retailer recently announced that it would be signing a long-term lease for an 81,000-square-foot-facility in East Austin, Texas. The company also noted that this move stems from its hopes to become a dominant force in the digital retail space.H-E-B signed a long-term lease for an 81,000-square-foot facility in East Austin, Texas

As reported on our sister publication, AndNowUKnow, H-E-B has made a series of strategic technology investments this year in order to further establish itself as a technology leader in Texas, including the acquisition of Favor, the appointment of Bath as H-E-B’s Chief Digital Officer, and the recent addition of Mike Georgoff as Chief Product Officer for H-E-B Digital.

According to a press release, the world-class tech facility and innovation lab—for the company’s growing digital team as well as its delivery service, Favor—is slated for completion in spring 2019. H-E-B noted that it will turn the recently renovated industrial warehouse into a creative and collaborative workspace for digital team employees. It will also be Favor’s corporate headquarters.
