While construction for the Heights H-E-B has been going on for months now, those anticipating its eventual completion will now apparently have a another delay in the process.
According to a company spokesperson earlier this week, the San Antonio-based grocer’s newest store will now not be opening until early in 2019, after previously setting late 2018 as the completion date.
When the 92,000 square-foot store set to border 23rd Street and North Shepherd Drive broke ground last October, it marked the end of a series of setbacks for the San Antonio-based grocer’s expansion efforts. The day of the groundbreaking, H-E-B Houston Division President Scott McClelland said the schedule had the grocery giant’s Heights creation coming to fruition in August 2018.
A company spokesperson previously told The Leader in March that permitting issues had slightly delayed completion back to a late fall 2018 opening prior to the most recent delay.
Officials maintain the 92,000 square-foot store will strive to feature the “best of the best” in every department to the best of their abilities when it opens early next year. However, as dates are subject to change based on various factors, the company has yet to state set a specific date of completion for the Heights location.
“The Heights is my dream store to get built,” McClelland told The Leader in a previous interview about the store. “Good things come to those who wait, I promise.”
