H-E-B recently started construction on its fourth supermarket location in the Dallas-Forth Worth metropolitan area, with a new store in Allen, Texas, which is set to open in summer 2023, employing about 500 workers.

It will be the company’s fourth location currently under construction in Collin County, which also includes stores in Frisco, Plano and McKinney, reports Progressive Grocer. The latest expansion reinforces the retailer’s commitment to serve more customers in this rapidly growing part of Texas. The DFW Metroplex has a population of more than 7.6 million.

The new 117,000-square-foot H-E-B Allen store, the company’s flagship format, will include a True Texas BBQ restaurant and H-E-B Curbside and Home Delivery. It will also provide a full-service H-E-B Pharmacy with two-lane drive-thru and Texas Backyard department, which offers outdoor essentials, reports PG.

Additionally, the Allen store will be the first location in North Texas to include an H-E-B Wellness Primary Care clinic as a part of the store format. The clinic will offer full-service primary care for all individuals ages 12 and older, operating in coordination with registered dieticians with a food first philosophy rooted in science.

“We have been welcomed with open arms into the Collin County community,” said Juan-Carlos Rück, H-E-B EVP, North West Food/Drug Division. “We’re excited to become neighbors in another dynamic and growing North Texas city. We look forward to providing an outstanding shopping experience in Allen with the best H-E-B has to offer.”

The Allen store will offer positions that range from department managers to cashiers. It’s estimated that it will employ approximately 500 people.
