retail news in context, analysis with attitude

The San Antonio Business Journal reports that HE Butt is considering opening a number of stores in the Dallas/Fort Worth marketplace, in addition to the Central Market units that it already operates there.

A spokesperson for the company tells the Journal that it is too soon to know what format it might open there, but that the company is looking for potential sites. A timeline has not been established.

According to the story, “The first step in the expansion is already under way. In August, H-E-B began construction on a 450,000-square-foot distribution center in Temple, Texas. The facility will house stock for stores in Austin and Dallas.”
