I almost never go to Walmart, but happened to go the other day for a few things, and was pleasantly surprised to find a number of items that are not available at HEB. HEB is more convenient for me in terms of location, but I think maybe it's time to check out Walmart and Super Target more often (although I do prefer HEB for produce). We live near Bandera/1604...grocery options are unfortunately very limited up this way.

I see they were smart enough to face it north, and not west towards 1604. That would have been the expected direction, giving it more visibility for traffic along that road; but anyone who has been in that area in the late afternoon knows how brutal the setting sun can be. Good on HEB for doing their homework before constructing this store!

Cheers! M2

They did make that mistake in the current Bandera store when it first opened. It was being in a solar energy furnance that they had to correct with shading.

Great. It already takes two light changes to get through the intersection there during rush hour now it's going to take three or more.

Don't think so. Are there enough folks who would frequent such to make a special trip there.

Most are usually in concentrations of other high end stores. Maybe in the Rim or La Cantera or near the new Whole Foods. Bandera and 1604 is a little out of the main monied flow of folks.
