On Saturday, H-E-B will break ground on a planned 90,000-square-foot store at North MacGregor and Highway 288. It's not immediately known when the store will open ahead of the ceremony, but representatives say it should take nine months to complete.
The new store is being seen as a boon to the Houston neighborhood. It's the first full-service, brand-new grocery store to be built there in nearly three decades.
There is an H-E-B currently operating in the area of Old Spanish Trail and Scott Street. Calls were made to update the location, but there was a feeling the footprint wasn't large enough. The old H-E-B will be occupied by another store, but we aren't sure which one just yet.
