H-E-B confirms first Lubbock location

H-E-B has unveiled plans to open its first store in Lubbock next year, continuing its expansion into West Texas. 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.

Earlier today, H-E-B announced the news at an event in Lubbock, which was attended by local elected officials and several other community stakeholders. H-E-B 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.

Scott McClelland President of H-E-B Food/Drug Stores, said the Lubbock location was the company’s “worst kept secret.”

“It’s true!” McClelland said. “The wait is over. And I’m happy to say H-E-B is coming to Lubbock.”

At the Lubbock store, 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 to mention include H-E-B Curbside, 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.

Construction is set to begin early next year.

“It’s been a long time coming,” Juan Carlos Ruck, the Senior Vice President of H-E-B’s Food & Drug Division, said. “It’s going to be important we enter this market in a way that shows how much the love and respect we have for it.”

“Our current goal is to open the doors at the 114th Street and Quaker location of a 120,000 square foot store in late 2020. We’re pulling out all the stops for this first store in Lubbock.”
