The construction of H-E-B at Spur 149 and FM 1488 in Magnolia has been delayed again, according to a representative from Stratus Properties Inc. The grocery store, which was originally slated to open in fall 2020, was put on hold last summer and then delayed with a groundbreaking date of June 14, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.

Stratus Properties plans to begin construction on the store later this summer once land conditions on the development improve and final agreements are made with H-E-B, according to a June 21 phone call with Stratus Properties.


H-E-B is part of a larger development named Magnolia Place, which is a 120-acre, mixed-use development including 35,000-40,000 square feet of retail space and 14.6 acres of residential properties, Community Impact Newspaper previously reported.
