AUSTIN, Texas — Texas favorite H-E-B is moving to conquer another huge market in the state--the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
On Friday, the grocery chain announced plans to bring their stores to the DFW Metroplex in 2022.
The stores will open flagship H-E-B stores in Plano and Frisco in the fall of next year.
The company's Central Market stores have been in the DFW area since 2001, and H-E-B stores have been built in nearby communities like Burleson, Hudson Oaks, Granbury, and Waxahachie.
But actual H-E-B stores haven't been available to shoppers in Dallas-Fort Worth.
“This is an exciting day as we share plans to expand our presence in the DFW market with the introduction of H-E-B, our flagship banner, to our growing network of stores,” said Stephen Butt, President – Central Market Division of H-E-B. “For the past 20 years, Central Market has been committed to earning customers’ trust, and H-E-B Partners will work hard to earn the confidence of the many new shoppers we look forward to serving in the Plano and Frisco communities.”
H-E-B will open one store in Frisco at the northeast corner of Legacy Dr. and Main St., and one store in Plano at the southwest corner of Preston Rd. and Spring Creek Parkway.
Additional details about the new stores will be shared at the groundbreakings, which are projected for this summer.
