H-E-B Launches Curbside Pilot in Houston, Texas
HOUSTON, TX - Another big name grocer is adding curbside grocery pickup to its repertoire—the San Antonio, TX-based H-E-B. Company officials are now confirming that the company will be piloting its new service in its Houston Bunker Hill location.
"We are excited to kick off this program just in time for the holidays," Cyndy Garza-Roberts, Director, H-E-B Public Affairs, Houston told news source Click2Houston. "Every day we strive to enhance our customer's experience. Curbside Pickup makes grocery shopping even easier and more convenient whether you're in the neighborhood or stopping by on your commute."
Customers of the location can now order groceries online at http://hebtoyou.com, and 8 hours later, personal shoppers will have taken your order, gathered your groceries, and brought them to the curbside pickup location at the store. There is a service fee of $4.95, but no minimum order is required. Orders also can be placed up to seven days in advance.
Curbside pickup has been one of the most popular trends in grocery this year, with notable companies who have also made the move in recent months being Loblaw, Sendiks, Meijer, and Wal-Mart. Houston has been one market that’s been targeted, in particular.
As we’ve previously reported, H-E-B also recently joined forces with Instacart to offer a grocery deliver service to the Houston market in September.
