H-E-B expanding its Burleson store
San Antonio-based grocery chain H-E-B today said it is spending $14 million to upgrade its four-year-old Burleson store into an H-E-B Plus.
The store opened in 2010 with 88,000 square feet but is now increasing that to 115,000 square feet in order to accommodate the expanded departments.
The store, 165 NW John Jones Drive, will feature new products and variety when the expansion is completed in February.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for us and our customers,” said Eli Daniel, the store’s general manager, in a statement.
In addition to groceries, H-E-B Plus stores offer electronics, toys, housewares, grilling and outdoor furniture, apparel, party supplies, cell phones and tablets, and home décor.
It will have an expanded bulk items section with 600 new products and well as more fruits, vegetables and organics, for example.
The store will also double its space for beer and wine.
H-E-B reports annual sales of more than $20 billion at its 350 stores in Texas and Mexico.
