H-E-B will open its largest store in San Antonio this year and several in northern Mexico as part of a plan that includes new construction, upgrades and expanded facilities, executives said this week.
The grocer will expand or open 22 stores in Texas and remodel 33 other locations, said Craig Boyan, H-E-B president and chief operating officer, including 15 in the city.
In Mexico, the company plans to open five stores, despite contending with hijacked truck trailers, parking lot security issues and the devaluing peso.
The San Antonio-based company, which has nearly 300 stores in Texas, said it surpassed the $1 billion mark in annual sales in Mexico, where it has had a presence for 15 years.
