Highly-anticipated H-E-B to open in Meyerland next week after last store closed due to Harvey flood damage

HOUSTON – Beloved Texas grocery store chain, H-E-B is set to open its doors in Meyerland next week after the community was without an H-E-B store since 2017 following flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey.

The highly-anticipated two-story store in the Meyerland Plaza will open on Wednesday, Jan. 29, at 4700 Beechnut Street. The 95,000-square-feet store will be in the northwest corner of Meyerland Plaza and will feature a parking structure and elevator on the lower level, and shopping and a sky bridge to JC Penney on the second level.

The building will also house a BBVA Compass Bank.

The store will feature H-E-B-branded products, a bakery, meat market, sushi, juices, a cafe and sandwiches and dry, frozen, dairy and deli items. There will also be flowers, the Cooking Connection, Meal Simple, Kosher amenities and Curbside pickup.

In October 2017, H-E-B closed the location at North Braeswood Boulevard and Chimney Rock Road after it incurred severe flood damage. The grocery store chain decided not to reopen that location.

“We look forward to returning to a neighborhood we have been a part of for more than 25 years and ‘re-serving’ this community in a bigger, better way,” said Lisa Helfman, director of H-E-B public affairs in Houston. “We have always planned to continue our legacy in Meyerland and we can’t wait to open our doors next week to this very patient, resilient community.”
