H-E-B and Kroger resume regular hours after winter storm

As Houstonians continue to work to recover from the winter storm, water issues and power outages, H-E-B and Kroger stores are returning to normal operating hours.

Both grocery store chains also report a return to pickup and delivery services, as slots are available.

"We have been working hard to ensure our customers can get what they need at Kroger, and we couldn't do it without our incredible team of associates," said Joe Kelley, president of Kroger Houston. "Many of our stores were affected by the outages, but we have come back strong, and we are here for Houston."

H-E-B released a statement that they're continuing to work to restock their stores with items that were in short supply during the storm.

"While the severe weather briefly interrupted the food supply chain, our stores remain open and H-E-B trucks are on the road. We have more than 1,500 H-E-B trailers going out today to restock our stores as quickly as possible, and we are working closely with several of our vendor partners to make deliveries direct to stores and help replenish key products such as water. Additionally, H-E-B has resumed all manufacturing of items our customers need, including milk," the release read.
