H-E-B held a groundbreaking celebration May 25 to mark the official start of construction on its newest store in Allen, Texas. Set to open in late summer 2023, the new store will be located at the corner of Exchange Parkway and State Highway 5, across the street from Allen High School.
This will be the company’s fourth location currently under construction in Collin County, which also includes stores in Frisco, Plano and McKinney.
At 117,000 square feet, the store will showcase all the quality products and innovative services H-E-B customers have come to love and expect.
The store will include a True Texas BBQ restaurant, as well as H-E-B curbside and home delivery, which will allow customers to place orders online for pickup at the store or delivery to the home. Other features include a full-service H-E-B pharmacy with two-lane drive-thru and Texas Backyard department, which offers outdoor essentials.
Additionally, Allen will be the first location in North Texas to include a H-E-B Wellness Primary Care clinic as a part of the store format. The clinic will offer primary care for all individuals ages 12 and older, operating in coordination with registered dietitians with a food first philosophy rooted in science.
Services will include primary care, physical therapy, health/nutrition coaching, clinical pharmacists, specialty referrals and labs to create a coordinated approach to healthcare under one roof.
“We have been welcomed with open arms into the Collin County community,” said Juan-Carlos Rück, H-E-B EVP of the North West food and drug division. “We’re excited to become neighbors in another dynamic and growing North Texas city. We look forward to providing an outstanding shopping experience in Allen with the best H-E-B has to offer.”
In 2021, H-E-B announced its plans to open stores in Plano and Frisco, which are slated to open this year. Earlier this year, H-E-B also broke ground on a store in McKinney.
“For years, the possibility of H-E-B’s expansion into Allen has been one of the most discussed and anticipated developments in our community,” said Allen Mayor Ken Fulk. “We’re delighted to finally celebrate their arrival – not only as a culinary destination, but as a corporate partner to local communities across Texas.”
To celebrate the groundbreaking of the store, H-E-B gave $50,000 to five local nonprofits located in Allen, including the Allen Philharmonic, Allen Arts Alliance, Powered to Move, All Community Outreach and EXPOW. Each group was presented with a $10,000 check at the ceremony.
“One of the true joys of being a part of the H-E-B team is getting to know local organizations doing great work in the communities in which we operate. We are pleased to be able to give back to five of these organizations making a difference in Allen,” said Mabrie Jackson, H-E-B director of public affairs. “We look forward to continuing H-E-B’s spirit of giving commitment and serving our new neighbors starting now and well into the future.”
