yes...I'm very excited about it. We live in Castle Hills so it will be a welcome alternative to the substandard H-E-Bs at Lockhill/NW Military and Blanco/West. I plan to make it "My H-E-B."

Between the entire Voeckler property redevelopment, especially the park, and the Park North development going in down the street I will never want to leave this area!

What park? Has there already been another thread about this (long time lurker here)? By the way, why don't parks have spray fountains for the kids to play in like so many other cities - I really miss that.

The placement of Central Market items is all over the city. Our HEB at 281 and Evan's road has signs that say "Evan's Market" in the Central Market script as well as some green Central Market shopping baskets and many of their products.

TJ's would be nice but I would just like another "normal" store added to our selection as well. HEB drives all of them out of town!

Texas does it bigger...free public pools! Unfortunately, the only spray fountains you'll find are in paid amusement parks.

I started a thread on the Dallas forum discussing the grocery chain, Aldi, opening stores in North TX and eventually throughout all of Texas after their big 500,000 sq ft. distribution center is built supposedly near Denton. Why is this important? Because Aldi's manages Trader Joe's and the thinking has always been that TJ's isn't in Texas because there isn't a distribution center here. Well, with parent Aldi building that huge center and planning to open their warehouse stores beginning in 2009, could Trader Joe's in Texas not be too far behind?! Keeping fingers crossed...

You lucky San Antonians, you. Trader Joes is my favorite grocery, with fair prices, fair market practices and lots of great items you can't find anywhere else. An example: I love almonds. Almonds cost $8.00/lb. at the cheaper big grocery outlets nearby me. At the health food stores, they cost upwards of $11.00 pound. Trader Joes price for almonds? $5.00/lb. Now we're talking.

Costco sells big bags of raw, unsalted almonds and walnuts very inexpensively. I can't remember off the top of my head how much they run, but it's super cheap.

Yes but (and I do love Costco) the bag is probably like 10lbs. If you are the only one eating them it's kinda impractical. TJ's has the same prices but in regular sized packages. I really hope we get a Trader Joe's!!
