Construction projects at H-E-B have been underway for the past few months and are expected to continue until mid-September.
“Almost everything in the store is going to be touched with these renovations,” a store spokesman said. “All of this is in an effort to better serve our community.”

Over 6,000 square feet is being added to the existing store, which will be used to expand produce storage and offerings.
This will also offer more space for more produce products and more pre-made Meal Simple foods.
Other additions include:
• Thirty-two-foot cooler of gourmet cheese offerings;
•New European-style display cases for cakes and other bakery items;
• An expanded pet section;
•Expanded sections for Texas Front Yard and Backyard which includes plants and barbecue supplies;
• Expanded beer and wine selections, including increased holding capacity for beer and an increased variety of wines.
A new and improved service center was added to the front of the store as well as self-checkout stations.
In addition, 12 new handicap parking spots are being added.
H-E-B will continue to offer curbside and delivery grocery service, waiving fees for next-day orders.
