HEB announces plans to expand into Lubbock furthering commitment to West Texas. The retailer plans to open a more than 120,000-square-foot store by late 2020
Continuing its expansion into West Texas, H-E-B has unveiled plans to open its first store in Lubbock next year. Set to open its doors in late 2020, the more than 120,000-square-foot store, which will be located at 114th and Quaker, will be a shopping destination with a top-quality product assortment – available at H-E-B’s celebrated low prices.
Customers will find all the signature features and conveniences they expect from H-E-B, with many new and expanded product selections. Some distinctive features include a fuel station with car wash, a Texas Tech collegiate shop, which will be fully stocked with licensed Texas Tech apparel and accessories, and a True Texas BBQ, H-E-B’s lauded barbecue restaurant that was recently named best barbecue chain in Texas by Texas Monthly and a top barbecue chain in the nation by Thrillist, which will include indoor and outdoor seating.
H-E-B has tailored the store’s design to reflect the look, feel and traditions unique to Lubbock, emphasizing the hometown West Texas flair. Designed in-house, several H-E-B Partners (employees) working on the project, including the lead manager of design, are Texas Tech University graduates. With construction set to begin early next year, the store will be built with environmental sustainability in mind, incorporating several energy efficient inclusions such as CO2 refrigeration units and LED lighting.
“The wait for Lubbock residents is finally over. We’re extremely excited to announce that H-E-B is coming to the Hub City,” said Scott McClelland, President of H-E-B Food & Drug. “Our locations across West Texas continue to thrive, and the Lubbock store will allow us to answer the long-standing call for an H-E-B in this community.”
