I have mixed feelings about this. I've always been an HEB shopper and have always found to be well priced. They even gave me my first job as a sacker back in 1980. But I've never liked how they shuttered all of their small, neighborhood stores like the one formerly on the corner of Everhart & saratoga and even smaller ones. Now that my parents live just down the street from there, we have to drive the extra mile to their mega-size store. My poor arthritic mother can't even enjoy going to that store. It will be fun to see how the competition heats up between the two megastores.

I believe that's a part of living in the middle of a growing city. I agree it sucks but it comes with the territory. The days of going to the happy little grocery are long gone. I always found Portland HEB to be a great experience.

I'm already enjoying the competition. Two HEB stores near where we live are remodeling and HEB has been offering some really good coupons at the register. If only they would have a double or triple coupon war!

Even though I live on the southside, maybe five minutes from the Saratoga H-E-B Plus, I prefer to shop at the small grocery-only H-E-B on Alameda, across from that little antiques mall, when I'm on that side of town. It takes me ten minutes just to park and get through the parking lot and in the door at the big one and I can never do a quick in-and-out. I'm not a WalMart shopper, and I feel badly for the people who live in Bent Tree who now will have all that traffic and trashy people practically in their front yards, but I'll be glad when that store opens and relieves some of the congestion at the Saratoga H-E-B.

What we REALLY need is another chain in this town for some real competition. Come on Kroger, get your game on!
