H-E-B opened the doors of its newest store on Dec. 29, welcoming its first-day customers with a Times Square-inspired ball drop celebration. The all-new 107,000-square-foot El Dorado H-E- B, located at 18611 Eastfield Dr. in Webster, Texas, replaces the former Clear Lake Market H-E- B (El Camino Real).

The store exterior offers a nod to neighboring NASA with a metal shingle design that mimics the underside of the space shuttle.

Area residents will enjoy a spacious shopping destination with a pledge to deliver unsurpassed freshness and quality at affordable prices under the leadership of Jim Doxakis, general manager. A 15-year H-E-B employee, Doxakis is a 20-year area resident calling the Friendswood/Pearland area home.

“I look forward to serving the Clear Lake community and ensuring that our long-time customers from the previous store continue to enjoy the best of what H-E-B has to offer,” Doxakis said.
