H-E-B buys up more North Texas land in Rockwall in continued expansion

The grocery store giant purchased 12 acres on the southwest corner of I-30 and John King Boulevard in Rockwall, Texas, the Dallas Morning News reports. A H-E-B spokesperson confirmed the land purchase to the Dallas Morning News, but didn’t divulge any plans for construction on the property. 

The news of the purchase comes just days after reports that H-E-B also purchased land in Prosper, a small town north of Dallas and west of McKinney, where H-E-B is already building a store.

The Central Texas favorite for groceries is working on four stores in the Dallas area, with the most recent store popping up in Allen. H-E-B is also eyeing properties in the town of Melissa, and another in Forney.

The grocer has been making other moves in the corridor between Dallas and Austin to prepare for its expansion. In July, the company announced that it was expanding its frozen storage warehouse in Temple by 325,000 square feet. 

“As H-E-B grows into new markets across Texas, expansion of our Temple facilities supports our commitment to be the best retailer in Texas,” said Chad Madison, group vice president of H-E-B warehousing, about the expansion. 

H-E-B also opened a new e-commerce fulfillment center in Leander to expand its online delivery and curbside services.
