H-E-B gets the ball rolling on its newest DFW supermarket: Mansfield
It's Mansfield's lucky day: Texas supermarket king H-E-B officially started construction on a new location in Mansfield, breaking ground in a ceremony on February 3.
According to a release, the store, which was first announced in August 2022, will open in spring 2024.
The store will measure 118,000 square feet, and will be located at the corner of US 287 and Broad Street. H-E-B owns roughly 28 acres at the site.
H-E-B Mansfield joins H-E-B Alliance, currently under construction and set to open in spring 2024, as the first locations in Tarrant County. H-E-B also operates a Central Market location in Fort Worth.
H-E-B Executive VP Juan-Carlos Rück said in a statement that the company was excited to strengthen its commitment to DFW.
"Our H-E-B locations across North Texas continue to stir up great excitement with customers, and this H-E-B store will allow us to answer the long-standing call for an H-E-B in this thriving community," he said.
The store will follow a template set by stores in Plano and McKinney, including a True Texas BBQ restaurant with drive-thru on site; an H-E-B Pharmacy with drive-thru, backyard department, and home décor department with furniture, textiles, and pieces from the Haven + Key and Texas Proud collections.
It'll also have H-E-B Curbside and Home Delivery, allowing customers to place orders online for pickup at the store or delivery to the home.
Other highlights include bakery, deli, cheese, charcuterie island, sushi made in-store daily, Asian grill with rice bowls and teriyaki, live demonstrations and samplings, produce, meat, and floral department with online ordering and delivery service.
Also, an extensive craft beer and wine section with sampling station, bulk food items, sports nutrition products and supplements, frozen foods, cosmetics, pet food including Heritage Ranch by H-E-B pet food, plus seasonal items.
Decor will reflect the Mansfield community and incorporate energy-efficient inclusions such as CO2 refrigeration units, LED lighting, and native landscaping.
Time for a quote from the mayor:
“The Mansfield community welcomes H-E-B as a partner and advocate for quality service and world class standards of operation,” said Mansfield Mayor Michael Evans. “Our residents will be the recipients of top-quality grocery and produce, and we are excited about their presence in our city.”
