H-E-B New Austin Store Includes New Offerings

“Long-awaited” is an oft-used phrase but when it comes to H-E-B’s latest Lake Austin store, it’s spot on. The soon-to-be newest H-E-B began construction back in 2019 but faced numerous pandemic-related delays. In February 2023, the Lake Austin H-E-B, will finally open to shoppers. And it will include a number of new wrinkles.

Featuring a two-story porch with views of Lake Austin, the 97,000-square-foot H-E-B store will include vine-covered walls, natural lighting, and pitched roofs. For accessibility, the store will have an underground parking lot. Inside, the store will have three elevators and escalators both regular and for transporting carts. 

And when it comes to dining options, this new store has the others beat. The store will feature favorites like True Texas BBQ, a full bar with indoor and outdoor seating, H-E-B’s SouthFlo pizza restaurant, a coffeeshop with breakfast tacos, as well as hand-made sushi from Sushiya.
