LUBBOCK, Texas — H-E-B has unveiled plans to open its first store in the Lubbock area, continuing its push into West Texas.
Set to open its doors in late 2020, the new 120,000-square-foot facility will be located at the intersection of 114th Street and Quaker.
At the new Lubbock store, customers will find all the signature features and conveniences found at other H-E-B stores, with many new and expanded product selections.
Among the distinctive features planned include H-E-B Curbside shopping, a fuel station with a 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.
Construction is set to begin early next year.
Earlier today, H-E-B announced the news at a Lubbock press conference attended by local elected officials and several other community stakeholders.
The company also made a donation of two truckloads of food to the South Plains Food Bank as well as four additional $25,000 gifts to local nonprofit organizations.
It will present an interesting battle for consumers between H-E-B and United Foods, the locally entrenched local grocer that has served the Lubbock area for many years.
