The 90,000-square-foot building includes a shaded playscape, picnic tables and a drive-thru pharmacy, according to a news release from the company.
The newly-built location sits about a mile west of the existing Oak Hill H-E-B at 7901 W. Hwy. 290, Austin. A grand opening ribbon cutting at 8 a.m. Oct. 27 will feature Lake Travis Fiddlers and Ophie Garcia, H-E-B's longest-tenured employee, according to an Oct. 26 news release.
The store will also offer a large selection of craft and import beers and wines, and “Dinner Tonight” foods such as sushi and pre-prepared refrigerated dinners.The deli will offer rotisserie chicken, in-house roasted meats, charcuterie and a Mediterranean olive bar.
H-E-B constructed the new building with a focus on sustainability, the release said. The space uses rainwater harvesting and water retention ponds. The company is also preparing for a possible solar panel installation in the future, the release said.
The older store at 7010 Hwy. 71, Austin, will close upon the opening of the new store, representatives of H-E-B said, although they did not set a specific date.
