H-E-B is beginning construction on its second store in Frisco closer to residents in eastern Denton County and near Little Elm.
The 130,000-square-foot store is being built on the southwest corner of U.S. 380 W. University and FM 423 or Gee Road. It has a tentative opening date of late 2024. The site is referred to as the Four Corners Shopping Center on Frisco’s planning and zoning documents.
This is the seventh store the retailer has opened or announced since March 2021 when H-E-B first said it was moving ahead with a Dallas-Fort Worth expansion.
The first Frisco store opened last September. Plano followed in November.
McKinney will open this summer and Allen in the fall. Hiring 700 people to staff each of those stores is underway. Alliance in Fort Worth and Mansfield are under construction for 2024 openings.
H-E-B said in its statement that it’s committed to D-FW for the long term with more stores planned.
The additional store reinforces H-E-B’s “commitment to serve more customers in this dynamic and growing part of Texas,” said Mabrie Jackson, senior director of public affairs for H-E-B.
North Texas metro areas are leading the nation in population growth, according to new U.S. Census data.
