H-E-B’s Central Market is coming to northern Texas. The San Antonio based grocery store has announced the purchase of six Sun Fresh locations in the Dallas-Forth Worth area.
The state’s largest grocery chain will be opening four of the upcoming stores in Dallas, while two additional stores will open in Grapevine and McKinney.
“As we review our long-term planning options, it often makes sense to purchase property in advance of our real estate needs,” H-E-B/Central Market spokeswoman Mabrie Jackson recently told Dallas Business Journal.
Sun Fresh will be closing the doors of all six locations while the the acquisition is underway. Settlement of the transaction should be in the coming weeks, but an opening date is still in the works. H-E-B’s executive vice president of real estate, Todd Piland, isn’t quite sure how they want to use the locations yet.
“We are currently evaluating the feasibility of each site to determine the most effective use of the properties.”
Dallas currently operates two Central Market stores while H-E-B stores locations are in Burleson, Cleburne, Corsicana, Ennis, Granbury, Stephenville and Waxahachie.
Those waiting patiently for the opening can plan ahead with the exact location of all stores are below.
- Hardin Boulevard and El Dorado Parkway in McKinney
