Report: H-E-B Makes Plans For First Upscale C-Store


H-E-B is looking to get into the upscale convenience store business, according to the San Antonio Business Journal.

According to a Virtual Builders Exchange report, the San Antonio, Texas-based grocery chain will move forward with plans to construct a 7,416-s.f. c-store and fuel station near Bandera Road and North Loop 1604 West. That’s about half the size of H-E-B’s downtown location, which is in the 12,000-s.f. range.

Including the store and fuel-pump area, the site’s total floor plan will cover 10,296 s.f., with 2,880 s.f. dedicated to a Wendy’s fast-food location.

With an address at 11652 Bandera Road, the site will essentially be an extension of the H-E-B Plus! location just a block away, the Journal reports. According to a construction permit, construction for the store is estimated to cost $2.7 million. Work for the fast-food location will be an additional $360,000.

H-E-B operates more than 370 stores in Texas and Mexico.
