H-E-B Buys Six Sun Fresh Market Locations
SAN ANTONIO, TX - H-E-B looks to be expanding its footprint once again, particularly in the northern region of the Lone Star State.
The retailer has bought six locations from the local Sun Fresh Market, four in Uptown, Lake Highlands, Lakewood, and Northwest Dallas. The other two locations are located in McKinney and Grapevine.
"At this time, Central Market continues to be the primary format for Dallas-Fort Worth," said Todd Piland, H-E-B Executive VP of Real Estate, according to The Dallas Morning News. "We are currently evaluating the feasibility of each site to determine the most effective use of the properties."
Meanwhile, Director of Public Affairs Mabrie Jackson told the news source that H-E-B/Central Market is thrilled to have these new stores, which Sun Fresh is currently in the process of closing after only a year or so of operation.
H-E-B has made several strides in expansion since it was reported that growth was top of mind for the chain back in May, including the announcement of two more stores in hometown San Antonio and upping its land ownership to 20 pieces in the state.
This most recent acquisition boosts the retailer’s position in what are being reported as burgeoning retail markets. AndNowUKnow will continue to report once it is determined if these will be additional H-E-B locations, more growth for it Central Market format, or both.
