A chapter 380 agreement received unanimous Cibolo City Council approval for a new H-E-B store to be built on approximately 45 acres on the northeast corner of FM 1103 and Main Street.

The store will be approximately 110,000 square feet with a 55,000 square-foot electronic fulfillment center facility supporting H-E-B’s curbside and delivery business, according to documents from the city.

The agreement said the store opening would be on or before June 30, 2023, with the curbside facility up and operating within 18 months of opening.

The original plan was to open by March 31, 2023, but H-E-B vice president of real estate Benjamin Scott asked the city council for a three-month extension due to supply shortages for construction, including insulated panels for coolers and freezers.

Council approved the amendment at its Sept. 28 meeting.


The project also calls for the widening of Main Street no later than the store opening.

The 380 agreement is for a 10-year rebate of the maintenance and operation portion of the ad valorem property tax with a maximum rebate of $1 million. The rebate is 100% for the first five years, 75% for the next three years and 50% for the final two years.

Credits will also be given for impact fees and payment of economic development funds totaling $1.22 million.

The new H-E-B will provide:

  • 350 new jobs with an average salary of $26,146;

  • $3,311,316 in sales tax in the first 10 years;

  • $1,469,151 in property tax. After the rebates to M&O, the city retains approximately $757,718 and $101,964 in permit fees;

  • $1,081,100 in utility revenues;

  • More than $30 million in capital investments


H-E-B has more than 340 stores in Texas and northeast Mexico and has its headquarters in San Antonio.
