A massive new grocery store is wheeling onto the city's Far West Side. On October 30, H-E-B officially opened the doors on a 112,000-square-foot location at 14325 Potranco Rd., near TX-211.
The store will employ more than 350 employees, or partners in H-E-B lingo, and offer new amenities, increased produce and meal options, and expanded services such as self-checkout and H-E-B Curbside.
Additionally, the new Far West Side store includes:
- Pharmacy with drive-thru service
- Gas station and carwash
- Special organic and Texas-grown produce section
- Expanded meat, deli, bakery, and seafood departments
- Meal Simple area with to-go options
- Sushiya with handmade sushi
- Tortillería for fresh tortillas made in-house
- Bloom florals department
- Texas Backyard section with outdoor furniture and grills
“This new store will allow us to better serve the needs of the growing community in San Antonio’s far west side,” said Whitney White, H-E-B spokesperson, said in a release. “With the highest standard of service and top-quality selection, we are excited to offer our customers a world-class store that will enhance their shopping experience.”
The Potranco store is just the latest development for the homegrown brand, which famously opened its first store in Kerrville more than a century ago. Today, H-E-B is headquartered in San Antonio and has more than 100,000 employees across Texas and Mexico.
In celebration of its newest Alamo City shop, H-E-B will donate $10,000 each to the Medina Valley Education Foundation and Northside Education Foundation.
