H-E-B to Replace West Side Store with a Newer, Bigger Store


Share On Social!

H-E-B’s oldest operating grocery store is located on the near West Side of San Antonio, TX. Despite its rich history, the store isn’t up to modern standards. Almost a third the size of a typical H-E-B, meat and produce selections are limited, as well as space for parking. For many folks living in this low-income predominately Latino area, this H-E-B is the only full-service grocery store for miles.

But H-E-B wants to revitalize the old store. In May 2014, the locally based grocer will start tearing down the 69-year-old store and replace it with a modern, second-story market that features parking in the building on the first floor, a new deli area, the addition of a prepared food department and expanded produce, meat and seafood sections.

H-E-B will find temporary work at other locations for those who currently work at the store.

It also plans to hire at least 50 additional workers before it reopens in February 2015.

This store will greatly improve healthy food options available to families in the city’s southwest side.
