    I've been to the new one on1604 @ Bandera a few times already since it opened last week.

    I like it and hate it. A lot of stuff the other one didn't have but it'll be a pain in the ass to just get milk which is purposely located at the back of the store.

    When I went Saturday, I got full on samples. It might be bigger than costco....

    I went last Thursday and there was a 40 minute wait to pay... let's just say I didn't buy anything.. and the beer selection wasn't impressive.

    I need to properly judge it when its not opening day.


    Their produce section is real nice. I thought they had a fairly decent beer selection, and a unique setup, had the usual case and then another case off to the side.


    Wish they had a Cafe on the Run though.

    No, I figured they just gave the deli a fancy name.

    Is it good?

    Yeah, all 25 checkouts were open and the lines were back to the aisles.
    It was like Black Friday. I got a few good coupons that they were handing out, but fighting the crowd sucked.

    I have no doubt they did $1 milly in sales this weekend.

    Not a fan of HEB Plus. Too freaking big, and I don't particularly like the way they are arranged.

    If I want groceries, I'll go to HEB.

    If I want electronics or whatever, I'll go to Wal-Mart or Target.

    There are very few occasions where I'm like "oh shit, I need to go pick up some potatoes and a TV".

    And before anyone brings up the concept of Super Wal-Mart or Super Target, I don't shop for groceries there either. Maybe pick up the occasional item if I'm in there and I need it, but their selection sucks, the prices are jacked, and their meat sucks.

    When the Alon Market opened, people complained about the same thing. They ended up putting a cooler case with milk at the front.

    We have one of the original (3 or 4) HEB plus' in our area. Used to go to it all the time as it was the closest HEB. I would only go before 10am on Sat/Sun, after 7 or 8pm anyday or during a Cowboys game. It was fine - has a wider selection on many things... but that was it. We went because it was the closest one.

    Now that I've moved and we have a regular HEB ~1 mile away and the Plus is ~3 miles away, I never go to the Plus anymore. The Plus carries many more items geared towards the hispanic population compared to our neighborhood one so sometimes we'll hit it up if specifically looking for something. With that said, it's always interesting to see how varied the HEB's are according to their neighborhood/population. Again, these HEB's a just a couple of miles apart and the difference between them is night and day with what they carry/who they cater too.

    That's called Grocery Marketing 101.

    I think HEB actually does a great job marketing to the neighborhoods they are located in.


    You see mostly HEB brand stuff at the ones on the south sides. A shit ton of name brand shit on the north side.

    This is one major reason why they do such a great job in this market and Walmart, Target and the other little small stores make such small in roads on HEB. Granted they have cornered the market really well, but give them credit for continuing to do their research and cater to their market, no matter how maddening it might be if you goto a store thats not in 'your' market.

    Most definitely.

    I don't drink much wine, but they have a pretty huge area for it.

    then again, it seems most HEBs have decent wine selections.

    It's ok to visit occasionally, but too annoyingly big for everyday shopping you can do at any regular HEB or Randall's.
