Renovations to the store, which has been there since 1976, began in October 2022. The store remained open during the renovation process.

In related news, earlier this month, H-E-B opened a new 117,000-square-foot store in Allen, Texas. This store is H-E-B’s fourth opened in the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) area in the past year as it continues its expansion in north Texas.

H-E-B designed the store to reflect the character of the local community and emphasize sustainability, incorporating several energy-efficient inclusions such as CO2 refrigeration units and LED lighting, per the release.

The store’s opening came after H-E-B announced plans for additional DFW-area stores in Melissa, Prosper and Rockwall. Additionally, the retailer says it will introduce Joe V’s Smart Shop by H-E-B to the region, the retailer’s discount format that offers a curated assortment of community focused products.
