Checkout-lane: League City residents soon will have more supermarket options. H-E-B has filed preliminary paperwork with the city to build a 98,000-square-foot store on the southeast corner of League City Parkway and South Shore Boulevard, reports Owen Rock, the city’s economic development manager. Can we expect some store wars? The proposed H-E-B would be directly across from Kroger, which is on the intersection’s northeast corner. The new grocery store would give residents in that part of town more grocery options, Rock said. The proposed H-E-B also would include a gas station, Rock said. H-E-B already operates a Bay Colony store at 2955 Interstate 45.
H-E-B is the latest to show interest in the area. Retail/restaurant activity at the intersection of League City Parkway and South Shore Boulevard is heating up in a big way. As previously buzzed, fast-food purveyor McDonald’s and coffee seller Starbucks are planning stores in a strip center underway on the northwest corner of the intersection. No word on when H-E-B might begin construction. Stay tuned.
