We are about to make an order, but before pushing the button are wondering if anyone has positive or negative experience with this supermarket?

Thanks.
We are equal distance from an HEB and a super walmart. We try to shop HEB as much as possible , much rather support local than not.

Thank you all.

I ordered, and of the various things, only the HEB brand Genoa salami seemed off.

Fruit was good, meat was great, on sale items seem reasonably priced, not on sale items seem a bit expensive.

I think Tom Thumb and Albertsons have better rewards programs. There have been times when I've saved more than $20 through the app shopping via my grocery list and not clipping coupons.

I have decided to shop only at Sprouts, Costco and HEB. Kroger is always a mess. They run a digital special but the register does not know it. SO that .99 product that I bought 6 of is really 1.50 each. Or another trip back to Kroger.

Kroger in Houston hired a former manager from HEB to be the regional manager for the Houston are. They have discontinued their flyer in the mail. They send am email see our this week ad and it is BB&B ads. Now people will have to scroll through 100 of products. It is a total PITA.

Some thing are higher, some are cheaper at HEB.

The HEB brand just depends on what it is. The bakery is better than Kroger. Kroger has better beef.

OK stores, and most of their brand name stuff is good. But I don't seem to be as enamorant of them as everyone else. They are basically a monopoly in a lot of the state, so many people have no choice. I have found they they are really, really bad about keeping / having items in stock. Yes, I know...supply chain issues. But this was the case long before COVID and supply chain problems. Now it's just worse. And HEB seems to suffer from more supply chain issues than their competitors.

They also tend to just stop carrying name brand products in favor of their own brand. So if you like a particular brand, or in my case have food allergies in your house and CAN'T eat HEB's brand because of it, you are just out of luck. And again, many places / people don't have the option of just going to a different store to but the brand they need.

I love their HEB brand cookies -- especially the Cowboy cookies. Gotta try them!

I prefer Wally World over HEB due to saving money.

Same reason I don't like wal mart or amazon. They have killed more small businesses than any tax or politician ever could.
