We live by the corner of Hardy Oak and Wilderness and my husband and I have been making guesses as to what will go in there. Thanks for the heads up. Any other ideas as to what else will go in there? We figure a mattress store, nail place, hair place, all the usual. Fingers are crossed we will get a good mom and pop restaurant there ...... A girl can hope can't she!

They are expanding the store at Brook Hollow. They've asked the merchants to the east to relocate to other parts of the center. They will also be adding a drive thru pharmacy.

That would completely suck for me as that's my HEB. We go there several times a week it seems and it's literally minutes away. I have no desire to go to the Brookhollow one or any of them passed 1604. I don't get why they would close this one instead of the old crappy Brookhollow one.

Thank you Paka! Lord, I hope he follows in your child's footsteps. He goes from happy to crazy man in minutes sometimes.

As to the Brookhollow HEB they tried to close it in the past but so many older people live close that they have left it open for their benefit. At least that was my understanding of it. I used to live close to it but found the Thousand Oak store much better. Not sure why that won't work for those that shop at Brookhollow but there has to be some reason they keep it open as small as it is.

Wrong!! Though HEB does own land off of 1604 and Bulverde, there are no plans to build a store there. they have owned the land for over 10 years now, but it would cost a lot of money to level the land they own, so there is no rush to build a store there (maybe as more things pop up in that area, they will in the future, but not right now). HEB also owns the land accross from Rolling Oaks Mall off of 1604 and Nacogdoches. Right now, there are no plans to build a store there, but it would probably be a better place for them to build than on bulverde. It seems like right now the focus of growth is in northern Texas in small towns surrounding Dallas. HEB Senior Managment really wants to get into the Dallas market.

This will be a smart move given how crazy that intersection has become with the explosive growth. Now we have that huge construction zone which is making it that more difficult to drive there.

It's hard to guess sometimes what HEB will do.

That's a little disappointing, but not surprising. I like the size of the BH store. It's easy to pick up a few things there, without having to walk across the two acres of floor space that the Plus stores span.

It's all about location, location, location...HEB as big as they are will close a store down to open another near by. This leaves a vacant eye sore. It's hard to find another big box retailer that can match that space.
