H-E-B continues to expand its footprint in Texas as the market continues to became an increasing hub for retail. Most recently, the chain has announced two new San Antonio locations to open in 2017, with exact open dates yet to be announced.
Director of Governmental and Public Affairs at H-E-B, Dya Campos, said in an email to news source My San Antonio that the retailer declined to share too many details about the newest locations, but did confirm that a location would be unveiled at the city’s far west side, as well as one on the northeast side.
The west-area location will be on a 6.27-acre plot purchased by H-E-B in 2012, currently valued at $4.74 million. The second location is a retail center currently under way with local firm Fulcrum Development.
In recent months H-E-B has added more land to its reach, now owning 20 pieces of land total in the Texas’ Dallas, Collin, and Tarrant counties, as well as about 48 acres at a northwest corner of San Antonio valued at $9.9 million. This particular plot, the report said, Campos declined would become a new store.
H-E-B has extended not only its geographical reach, but its e-commerce as well, having launched a curbside pilot several months ago to enhance its consumers’ experience.
