PLANO, TX - E-commerce is the name of the game, and H-E-B has its pieces lined up for a victory. The retailer recently announced that it has opened a new e-commerce fulfillment center in Plano, Texas. The expansion builds on its commitment to integrating innovative technologies and providing a more convenient and better shopping experience.

Kedar Patel, Group Vice President of E-Commerce, H-E-B“At H-E-B, we’re always looking for ways to offer Texans a better shopping experience and more options to choose how they shop, pay for, and receive their products,” said Kedar Patel, Group Vice President of E-Commerce. “Across our business, we are adopting innovative technologies that give our Partners the tools they need to provide top-quality service to our customers whether they shop online or in our stores.”

The 55,000-square-foot facility will support H-E-B Curbside and Home Delivery orders throughout Plano and for surrounding stores such as Frisco H-E-B as well as stores in McKinney and Allen, which are expected to open later this year. The move reinforces H-E-B’s commitment to serve more customers in this rapidly growing part of the state.

According to a press release, H-E-B is actively hiring for a range of full-time and part-time positions at the fulfillment center. These positions will interact with some of the most innovative technologies in the company to help fill customer orders. The Plano facility will also employ more than 125 H-E-B partners as part of the e-commerce team.

E-commerce fulfillment centers allow for more capacity, greater efficiency, less aisle congestion for the in-store shopper, and better product availability. To help streamline the process and boost productivity, the facilities use various forms of automation. With these centers, H-E-B has grown supply chain capacity to help improve and power the expansion of its Curbside and Home Delivery services.

H-E-B celebrated the facility’s grand opening by making a $5,000 community gift to the Plano ISD Robotics Club. The Plano facility marks H-E-B’s sixth e-commerce fulfillment center the company has opened since 2018. By the end of next year, H-E-B looks to open additional facilities across the state.

We will be sure to report on those expansions as they develop, so don’t go anywhere.
