business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Dallas Morning News reports that “H-E-B is bringing curbside service to its Central Market stores, starting with its Fort Worth store on Thursday.” It is just the first of the company’s Central Market units to et the addition, and H-E-B rolls it out elsewhere in the chain.

“The move comes amid a broader grocery industry push into online ordering and curbside pickup,” the story says. “Last week, started using its Whole Foods Market stores in Dallas-Fort Worth to fill online grocery orders. On Thursday, Target and Shipt begin their membership-based delivery service to D-FW other Southwestern cities.

“Stephen Butt, president of H-E-B's Dallas-based Central Market division, said food experts at each Central Market store will select the freshest products and carefully pack them.”
