Between Super Target, Super Wlamart and my Sam's membership I avoid HEB most of the time.

Honestly, overall I prefer the Super Target over anywhere else simply because there's half as many people there. More than the annoying generic brand pushing, I hate that the HEB nearest me is packed with people and the parking lot is too small. I don't like to fight off crowds when I'm shopping, I'm perfectly happy to pay a little bit more to avoid all the people that won't.

Super Target isn't really any more expensive on actual food, but they'll nail you on the cleaning supplies, pet food, and 4-packs of toilet paper.

Between Super Target, Culebra Meat Market, and the occasional mad dash into Wal-Mart for aforementioned sundries, we've completely eliminated HEB in our household.

You should hit up La Fiesta for your fruits and vegetables. They're really cheap there. I would take La Fiesta's meat over Culebra Meat Market also. Although that's not much of a recomedation.

The produce at some HEB's is a lot cheaper than others too. The HEB at Marbach and 410 always has good prices on produce. The one at Potranco and 1604 (closer to my house) is a lot more expensive. They don't even have the same ad. I think the reason the Marbach one is cheaper is that there's a La Fiesta just down the road.

Yeah, the Marbach HEB is disgustingly cheaper than the rest of them. It's a total madhouse in there, though, so I'd avoid it unless your time and sanity are worthless.

You just have to have the right attitude to get through there. Go in ready to shove your way through like the rest of them and you do just fine Don't look at anyone and don't say sorry if you get in someone's way.

I buy the same stuff every two weeks (hubby will not eat new foods) and it's about $50 cheaper for me to go to the Marbach store. Part of that is the prices and part is that they don't have the appealing extra junk that I end up with when I go to the Potranco store.

Prices are based on region and type of store. you will pay more in groceries if you shop at a plus store. A smaller store on the southside will have the lowest prices.
