H-E-B broke ground on a new location in north Tarrant County, on the northern boundary of Fort Worth. The new store is scheduled to open in late spring 2024 at 3451 Heritage Trace Parkway in the Alliance neighborhood of Fort Worth. There are currently two Central Market stores that have served Tarrant County for two decades, but this will be the first H-E-B in Fort Worth. “We’re excited to become neighbors in this dynamic and growing area of Tarrant County, a community we’ve served and been a part of for more than 20 years with our Central Market stores,” said Juan-Carlos Rück, EVP of Northwest Food/Drug Division. “With the addition of H-E-B Alliance, we look forward to providing an outstanding shopping experience and the best H-E-B has to offer.” H-E-B is making a large push into North Texas for the first time in its history. The company recently opened stores in Frisco and Plano. In the Dallas-Fort Worth area, new stores are under construction in McKinney and Allen, with the store in Mansfield scheduled to break ground soon.
The 117,000-square-foot Fort Worth location will feature a pharmacy with drive-thru and a Wellness Primary Care clinic, offering primary care, physical therapy, health/nutrition coaching, clinical pharmacists, specialty referrals and labs. The store will include a True Texas BBQ restaurant with drive-thru, as well as curbside and home delivery. It will also have a Texas Backyard department with a wide selection of outdoor products.
To celebrate the groundbreaking, H-E-B gave $10,000 each to five community nonprofits. These donations build upon the company’s support of more than 150 non-profit organizations and public schools in the DFW Metroplex. “One of the true joys of being a part of H-E-B is getting to know local organizations doing great work in the communities we serve,” said Mabrie Jackson, Senior Director of Public Affairs. “We are proud to support these five organizations, and we look forward to continue serving our new neighbors now and well into the future.” H-E-B will make additional donations to local non-profits to celebrate the grand opening in spring 2024.
