H-E-B Plans Two New San Antonio Locations for 2017
SAN ANTONIO, TX - As San Antonio, Texas, continues to grow as a retail hub, H-E-B has announced growing its own footprint in the market as well. The chain is planning two new stores in the town to open in 2017, one in the west area of the city, and one in the northeast.
The west-area location will be on a 6.27-acre plot H-E-B purchased in 2012, currently valued at $4.74 million. The second location is a retail center currently under way with local firm Fulcrum Development.
Director of Governmental and Public Affairs at H-E-B, Dya Campos, did confirm the two new locations in an email to news source My San Antonio, but the retailer declined to share too many details about the stores or confirm specific open dates.
It’s the latest in a few moves for growth from H-E-B, who recently added more land to its reach, now owning 20 pieces of land total in 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, however, Campos declined would become a new store, according to the report.
And the retailer has extended its e-commerce reach as well, having launched a curbside pilot several months ago to enhance its consumers’ experience.
