This Week's Houston Deal Sheet
H-E-B's latest Houston location is underway. City leaders and H-E-B executives gathered at 2300 North Shepherd Drive Tuesday to break ground on the new 92K SF store scheduled to open in The Heights next fall.
Construction on the store will not officially begin until November. The location, a former Fiesta store, depended on whether Heights-area voters would change a rule prohibiting the sale of alcohol for off-site consumption, long a source of debate in the area. The grocer would not have moved into the dry zone, H-E-B Houston President Scott McClelland previously told the Houston Business Journal. The measure allowing alcohol sales passed last November.
The location is expected to be a multilevel store, similar in design to H-E-B's Bellaire location, sitting atop a parking garage.
