I'm in Houston. I just forgot to update my location on the forum.

I'm really curious why you are so concerned about what stores we have here. Are you planning on opening up some? Or is this some type of school project? It wouldn't bug me so much if you at least did a little research before posting such silly statements.
If you read MOST of his responses or thread titles, you would think he is about 5.......parents must REALLY not pay attention to their kids in Alabama.

Totally off topic, but if I walk into walmart for Shiner (Bock) and don't find it, I am NOT walking out with Bud light. That's just wrong. I will go elsewhere... (probably HEB)

That said, I have done shopping at HEB, Kroger (once) and occasionally I shop at Randall's, only because it is a few blocks away and I don't feel like going any farther than that sometimes, even to save money. In Colorado, Safeway was king. In Beaumont, it was HEB or the local Market Basket. In Katy, it is HEB, simply because nothing else really compares. I will even do my household shopping at walmart and then skip over to HEB.

Oh......At the moment, I just didn't understand why Publix haven't considered along with Belk, Bloomingdale's, H&M, etc.

Lighten up. The guy is just real curious and wants to learn about Houston. He is considering moving here after he finishes college at Alabama A&M with a Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering. He is a good guy!

Thanks so much! I don't know why these people get so defensive. I'm not harmful at all nor disrespectful.

I have been to Publix in Orlando,FL a couple of times. It is a nice store. The Houston grocery market is one of the most highly competitive in the nation. It would be hard for a newcomer to come in and get a decent share of the market. I would like to see Publix enter the market though. It would be good to have a new choice in the city and surrounding areas.

That would be nice if it did. From reading these threads about relocation, it seems like a pretty share of them are from Floridians. I'm very aware that relocatees love to see the same things in their new home that are in the old home.

Like I said, you are a good guy. There is nothing wrong with you wanting to learn all you can about Houston and Texas.

It would be nice for people whom are relocatees to have a store they are familiar with here. That said though, you just got to adapt to what you have available at hand. Like I stated earlier, I welcome Publix if they choose to enter the highly competitive Houston Grocery Market.
