H-E-B will begin a $10 million remodel to its Uvalde location in October, focusing on upgrading the store’s refrigerators, according to news reports and filings with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

Uvalde’s one H-E-B is located at 201 E. Main St., about a mile north of Robb Elementary School where a gunman killed 19 children and two teachers in May. 

The San Antonio-based grocer donated $10 million in June to help the city build a new elementary campus. That followed a pledge by H-E-B to give $500,000 to support victims and surviving family. Additionally, a trust associated with the grocery giant also committed $500,000 to nonprofits assisting Uvalde’s community.

Following the May 24 mass school shooting, H-E-B Chairman Charles Butt said the grocer would continue to support the Uvalde community and that “Uvalde people are our people.”

H-E-B’s Uvalde store opened in 1959. Work on the remodel of the 79,461-square-foot store is expected to be completed in May 2023.
