On August 31st, Mueller announced H-E-B as the anchor for the Mueller Market District with a new store to open in 2013. Neighbors, community leaders and representatives from both Mueller and H-E-B gathered at Mueller Central on Wednesday, August 31st for the much-anticipated announcement with street performers, a fruit parfait bar and an appearance by H-E-Buddy.
Bordered by 51st Street and the future extensions of Berkman Drive and Barbara Jordan Boulevard, the 75,000-square-foot H-E-B grocery store will serve Mueller and surrounding neighborhoods. This H-E-B at Mueller will be a new prototype grocery store never seen before that will merge many of the traditional store elements and grocery brands its customers love with new designs and features that will be shared as plans become available.
H-E-B’s Mueller store will be the company’s most sustainable store to date and H-E-B plans to use it as a testing ground for innovations in sustainable design strategies with a focus on a dramatic reduction in energy and water use, along with new recycling programs.
H-E-B currently plans to break ground on the new Mueller store in 2012 to keep on track with a 2013 opening. H-E-B intends to keep its Hancock Center and Springdale locations fully operational after its store in Mueller opens.
