H-E-B opens new store in historic Houston community

H-E-B MacGregor Market open for business with an elevated grocery shopping experience
(Houston) —

H-E-B officially opened the highly anticipated H-E-B MacGregor Market on Dec. 18. Located at the intersection of N. MacGregor Way and SH 288. The new, 90,000 sq. ft., store features expansive shopping options and added services for convenience, quality selection and unsurpassed freshness.

“This H-E-B store has been in the making for some time now, and we are thrilled to put our roots down on this historic corner of Houston,” said Winell Herron, H-E-B Group VP for Public Affairs, Diversity and Environmental Affairs. “Thanks to the diligent work of the City of Houston, the Houston Housing Finance Corporation (HHFC), community supporters and our H-E-B team, we are honored to be an even bigger and better part of this neighborhood.”

H-E-B sought to serve this community with eyes on the present location since 2015 and broke ground in February 2019.

Anika Wiley, a 22-year H-E-B veteran, will lead the store team that includes Jason Holsinger, Center Store Leader; Isaac Williams, Perishable Leader; and over 435 H-E-B Partners (employees). Wiley began her H-E-B career as a deli clerk in Austin. While rising through the ranks in various management positions, including her most recent post as Top Store Leader for H-E-B Beaumont 6, she gained an uncompromising strength for perpetuating H-E-B’s enduring customer and community service. When not managing top-performing stores or spending time with her husband, Eric and son, Miles, Wiley serves as a mentor to local students.

“I’m humbled to serve our community with a state-of-the-art store,” says Anika. “We look forward to providing an outstanding shopping experience with the best H-E-B has to offer.”

Preserving MacGregor Market Wetlands

Located just off the banks of Braes Bayou, H-E-B MacGregor Market is home to an active and protected wetland. Throughout construction the team has made it a priority to preserve and enhance the natural habitat that borders the property along MacGregor Way. Visitors will enjoy sightings of Cooper’s Hawks, Yellow Crowned Night Herons, Red Mulberry trees and the American Tree Frog to name a few, all in the center of the country’s fourth largest city. 

Engaging Food Conveniences

H-E-B is always looking for innovative and convenient ways to enhance our stores with more choices, enabling you to choose how you shop, pay for and receive products. Whether it’s an in-store experience, picking up an online order, home delivery or grabbing a meal on the go – the H-E-B MacGregor Market has it all.

H-E-B MacGregor Market will offer the company’s largest selection of its popular H-E-B Meal Simple heat and eat options. Created with the highest quality ingredients, these family favorites are fresh, convenient, packed with flavor and ready to serve in minutes.

The Local Resource for Healthy Food Choices

MacGregor Market will serve as a quality living source that supports healthy eating on a budget. The store will have 1,500 H-E-B Organics options and its H-E-B Select Ingredients, a line consisting of H-E-B brand products that excludes unwanted ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors.
