H-E-B has been renovating stores all over Central Texas over the past few years, in part because the company has been adding curbside pick-up to more than 20 of them.
One of the oldest stores in the Austin area is joining those ranks.

The H-E-B on East Seventh Street was originally built in 1956, and the San Antonio-based grocer remodeled the store in 1999, but starting this week, the 54,259 square-foot store will undergo a "wall-to-wall" renovation that will add an expanded produce selection, a larger meat market, a healthy living department with bulk foods, a full-service seafood department and a first-of-its-kind H-E-B Blooms Flower Bar, "an interactive flower experience featuring seasonal designs of in-store created hand tied bouquets and arrangements ready for purchase."
This location, 2701 E 7th Street, will also get a covered H-E-B curbside pick-up area and offer home delivery. The remodel is expected to be finished this summer, and once completed, the store will have a celebration that will be open to the public.
From a release:
“We’re proud of our 63-year history of serving shoppers and families in East Austin,” said Jeff Thomas, H-E-B Senior Vice President and General Manager, Central Texas Region. “Over the years, this community has grown and changed and is ready for a store that reflects its needs. We have thoughtfully re-imagined this store to do just that with added amenities, conveniences and an expanded variety of quality products at affordable prices. We look forward to inviting our customers to celebrate with us this summer when the store renovations are complete.”
