PALMHURST—City officials gathered with representatives from H-E-B to celebrate not only the ground breaking of a new H-E-B store in Palmhurst, but also the 85th anniversary of the chain servicing the Rio Grande Valley.
“The Valley represents the time the company started gaining some traction, so we are thankful for the support that all of you have given H-E-B over the years,” Director of Retail Operations Tony Gonzalez said. “The store will be 96,000 square feet…it is going to be a pretty large store.”
Gonzalez added that the new store will be unique to the area, and he hopes it will meet the needs of the community. He said the store would be a different type of model with a larger bakery, guacamole station, a party center, and will offer a larger variety of fully cooked products and quesos frescos.
