SAN ANGELO – Move over H-E-B store #1, because there’s a new kid on the block and its’ your twin sibling entity, H-E-B store #2 which is a 92,000 square-foot version. 

An H-E-B store leadership team and regional team from San Antonio were on hand this morning, along with Mayor Brenda Gunter, and a well-represented San Angelo community to greet General Manager, Nick George and his staff at their grand opening, ribbon-cutting ceremony for its latest and newest H-E-B store, located at 5502 Sherwood Way. 

Conexión asked George what was the difference between the new store and the original one?

“Our new store has a few departments such as the Blooms department, which is home décor as well as full service floral delivery,” said George. “We also have our new curbside delivery service, so you can order your groceries online.”
