Lately HEB has been running ads about their NEW lower prices, but I have noticed in the past few weeks, fewer sale items and just a little bit of price increases.

About the only complaint I have with HEB is that their prices are a bit higher than Walmart or the commissary. Otherwise, I like their stores and selection...
No offense, but have you been out of SA in the past few years? HEB in SA has horrible selection. Wal-Mart has a better selection than HEB in SA. For that matter, HEB stores outside of SA have better selection than in SA. HEB in Houston is much more competitive on price and selection than those here. However, Kroger is still much better in selection than HEBs in Houston. I really believe that HEB is about the worst grocery store around for selection. All they do is pimp their HEB brands and Hill Country Faire.

I would disagree on the prices...they are highly competitive with Wal-Mart both on the food and non food side. I actually did some price compares and found that H-E-B in many instances were priced better than WMT. My total bill was actually cheaper at H-E-B than in WMT.

Which HEB stores have lower prices?

I noticed that the deli spinach dip jumped from $3.49 to $5.99 at Spring Branch store.

My husband refers to it as "HEEEEEB" just to irritate me.....

HEB is pratically a San Antonio institution! Me and HEB go back to since I was a kid and even today we are "bff's." I just went to HEB last night and got my HCF Orange Juice and my two 12 inch pizza pack for 4.50 something. NO store does more than MY HEB!

Oh and, if you do pronounce it anything other than H. E. B....people will look at you like you're an alien. So learn it the right way

HEB has come a long way in the past couple of years but I will say that I do miss having other choices like in years past growing up. Albertson's (still have one in new braunfels not too far from me) had a great produce, deli, and bakery section and did offer stuff that HEB didn't. Yes they were more expensive but that's not to say that you had to do your entire shopping there. Just get stuff here and there that they offered which HEB lacked. I was too young to remember Kroger but I heard that they had some good deals all the time too and not to mention the whole Double coupon thing. Anyone remember the Texans Grocery Store when Kroger went out? Then it became something else but I can't seem to never remember. Ahh the good ole days.

Texans became additional Handy-Andy locations.

Since it was mentioned, Just thought I'd chime in and say my cousin, who is black, works at heb (I been sayin heb since we moved here from California :-> ), but he started out a bagger that collected shopping carts, moved his way up to checker, and does such a great job as checker that they asked him to be a manager. So I don't think they don't hire minorities for higher positions. Just gotta work your way up. It seems cool, pretty decent prices and yes they are going lower on things as he tells us frequently.
