H-E-B develops a food emporium


HOUSTON H.E. Butt Grocery Co. is launching a first-of-its-kind grocery store concept in Texas on Oct. 24, the company said Tuesday.

H-E-B’s Cypress Market, located in Cypress, Texas, is designed to fuse together the company’s food, drug, and central markets in a 112,000-square-foot store that is larger than most area retailers.

H-E-B Cypress Market will contain more expansive food categories, the company said. The new store is said to feature a bakery, a cheese shop (which will stock more than 400 specialty and imported cheeses), the largest meat market and one of the largest seafood departments in the area.

Additionally, its produce department will offer more than 900 different fruits and vegetables. Customers can get their hands on 2,000 varieties of wine.

Central Market’s Cafe on the Run will offer take-out and catering services featuring a large assortment of Central Market products including a sushi bar, a coffee roast area, a healthy living department and a tortilleria.

Cyndy Garza-Roberts, director of public affairs for H-E-B’s Houston Region, said plans for the Cypress Market have been in the works for several years now.

“Our future customers helped us create their ideal destination grocery store,” said Garza-Roberts.
