Sneak Peek: H-E-B store opening in Meyerland

January 27, 2020

H-E-B plans to open its new Meyerland store on Wednesday, fulfilling its promise to return to a neighborhood devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

The 95,000-square-foot store, 4955 Beechnut in Meyerland Plaza, replaces a 18,000-square-foot H-E-B Pantry store that opened more than 25 years ago and closed in 2017 after flooding three times in as many years. The San Antonio grocer worked with Meyerland Plaza owner Fidelis Realty to turn an empty parking lot next to the JC Penney into the two-story H-E-B Meyerland Market.

“This community has been through so much,” said Lisa Helfman, H-E-B’s director of public affairs, who grew up in Meyerland. “There was never a thought of leaving. We believe in this community, and we want to serve this community.” 

H-E-B Meyerland Market features the chain’s largest selection of kosher foods to serve the close-knit Jewish community living in the Meyerland area. There are 11 synagogues within a four-mile radius of the store.

The store features kosher coffee and sandwiches from its Roastery shop, 17 varieties of kosher sushi, kosher meat and seafood and a variety of kosher baked goods from its pareve bakery, including bagels, scratch bread and tortillas made daily in house. There are nearly 1,000 food products on store shelves made by kosher vendors from around the world.

The Meyerland H-E-B is certified kosher by the Houston Kashrut Association and the Mehadrin Kashrut of Texas and is overseen by three full-time mashgiach, those who assure the laws of kashrut are upheld. The store has separate kosher meat, deli, bakery and juice-processing sections, which feature separate white-colored utensils and can only be accessed by employees trained on kosher cooking.


“We want this to be a one-stop kosher headquarters for the community,” said Levy Donin, H-E-B Meyerland Market’s manager in charge.

The new store will also stock a wide assortment of international foods to serve the diverse community in the southeast Houston area, including Asian, Latin American and European foods. There are Salvadoran cremas, Carribbean sauces, Israeli Bissli snacks and Brazilian Guarana soft drinks. The location has the second-largest wine section in the chain -- more than 2,000 varieties spanning from a $15 wine bottle to a $1,700 bottle of French Bordeaux.


“This really is a store for everyone,” said Winnell Herron, H-E-B’s group vice president of public affairs, diversity and environmental affairs.

H-E-B Meyerland Market also features a pharmacy, florist, grab-and-go “Meal Simple” foods, organic and health food sections, 21-day dry-aged beef, a Roastery coffee shop and curbside and home delivery services. There is also a BBVA Compass bank on the first floor, and a bridge from the second floor parking lot into the JC Penney next door. The store has some 700 parking spots with overhead indicator lights pointing drivers toward open and handicap spots.
