Officially, H-E-B has still not announced their plans to build a new store but H-E-B Real Estate Manager Mary Rohrer shared some details about the company's plans during three local meetings Tuesday.
Rohrer said the company will build a convenience store and gas station at the site near the intersection of U.S. Highway 181 and State Highway 72 in Kenedy, as well as a new 40,000 square-foot H-E-B store.
The new store will be more than three times the size of the store currently in operation in Kenedy, but smaller than the H-E-B Stores in Floresville and Beeville.
The new store will feature a deli, an eatery, a drive-through pharmacy and many other features that customers are used to seeing at larger H-E-B stores.
