H-E-B held a groundbreaking ceremony on March 3 for a store that is slated to open in late 2023 at the northeast corner of Custer Road and Eldorado Parkway.

The new McKinney location will have a large zone dedicated to curbside pickup at the back of the store, a fuel station, a car wash, a pharmacy drive-thru and True Texas BBQ, H-E-B’s barbecue restaurant, according to a news release from H-E-B.

In addition to the ceremony, which included performances from McKinney Boyd and McKinney high schools, H-E-B announced that it would donate $10,000 each to five local nonprofits: City Church, Community Garden Kitchen, Hugs Café, Love Life Foundation and Seed Project Foundation.

“Our company, just like the city of McKinney, has a rich history in Texas,” said Juan-Carlos Rück, H-E-B executive vice president of North West Food Drug, in the release. “We have a passion and commitment to serve the cities in which we operate. We look forward to adding more than 500 McKinney partners to our HEB family and giving back to organizations that help this area thrive.”

This will be the company’s third store in Collin County.

“We are proud to be part of the growing H-E-B family in Texas and give our residents more options to keep their dollars local,” McKinney Mayor George Fuller said.
