Have sister in law in Victoria which has been growing steadily for last 10 yr--
they basically have a WalMart and an HEB--
both stores when they came in just drove all other stores out by lowering prices below THEIR profit level just to capture the business of their rivals--(and HEB will do it here too)
that isn't illegal or anything but when they drove the other stores out then they started raising their prices...
My SIL just hates the way they do business but she doesn't have a choice since she isn't driving to Corpus to shop...

The Kroger closest to me is a Signature store (not from here, so correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that supposed to their nicer stores or something?) - and its on Belt Line and Marsh.. very ghetto in my opinion. I avoid going there, same thing with the Target next door to it.
I go to the Walmart on Belt Line and Montfort now for frozen things and toiletries, water,etc.. then across the street to Whole Foods for a few things I love there, and finally to Sprouts to get fruits/veggies. Haven't found a place I love for meat - any suggestions? I'm at across the street from the Galleria.

I might drive down to HEB this weekend......I have to see what all the hype is about
A Kroger Signature store just has a wider selection of products. Kroger's nicest store is the Kroger Fresh Fare stores, it's their version of Whole Foods.

Recently, two Kroger Fresh Fare stores opened in Dallas, one being in CityPlace and the other in the Medical District.

The Kroger Signature on Mockingbird/Greenville is the closest one to me. Usually I do a Kroger/Central Market run, with a few things occasionally from Trader Joe's. Had never heard of Kroger Fresh Fare. I might have to take a peek at the one in CityPlace!

OH! I forgot about Trader Joes.. I love that place. The only one I have been too is on Park and Preston in Plano though, I'll have to see if there is one closer. Yes.. I will be checking out Kroger Fresh Fare too, never heard of it. A lot of Krogers I see look run down.

The new Trader Joes just opened in Inwood Village. Depending on how crowded it is this weekend, we may try it out.

It's more spacious than the one on Lower Greenville. I went today around 1:30pm and it was pretty empty. Surely weekends will be crazy.

I moved to Dallas a year ago from San Antonio. I can attest that none of the chain grocery stores here is as good, overall, as HEB (which dominates the San Antonio and south Texas markets). They contract individually with farmers to grow their own, high-quality produce and their HEB and Central Market products are of excellent quality. They are also good corporate citizens and are very philanthropic in the communities in which they do business.
I look forward to being able to shop at HEB again after they start putting up stores here. Luckily I live almost as close to the Central Market here as I did in San Antonio, but I would gladly travel to the bigger one on Lovers and 75 if I didn't.

HEB has purchased a site in Frisco on the northeast corner of Lebanon Road and FM 423, so I would expect them to eventually open there although they are saying they have no immediate construction plans.
