HEB Opens Newest Waco Store

Posted:
WACO -

Three years in the making, HEB opened its newest store Friday morning at the former site of the old University Middle School at Valley Mills Drive and I-35.  The 121,000 square foot store is the largest for the chain in Waco, and it will replace two older stores on near Baylor and Floyd Casey Stadium that have now been closed.

The store has some new features, including a Flaming Bird grill, Stackers Sandwich area and a Baylor BearGear store, along with the fresh produce and meat departments the chain is well known for.

"I got a phone call several months ago that we were closing our #3 and #6 stores and was asked would you like to call this store Waco #9.  I said I see your match but I'd rather we call it Waco #1 because that's what we're going to be, " said Store Director Bill Davenport, who previously managed the Lake Air store and made it one of the top units in the Central Texas region.

Waco Mayor Malcolm Duncan Jr. said the new shopping center is a great new gateway for the city.  It took three years to plan and build, and HEB donated many of the items it salvaged from tearing down the old middle school to local schools and agencies.

HEB President Suzanne Wade and Senior Vice President Jeff Thomas were on hand to welcome shoppers and thank employee partners for their work getting the new store up and running.

The company continued its commitment to education in the community, awarding matching checks for $5,000 each to the Waco ISD Education Foundation and the Rapoport Academy.
