SAN ANTONIO, TX (December 2, 2015) – San Antonio community leaders, neighbors and customers joined H-E-B leadership today to celebrate the grand opening of the highly-anticipated South Flores Market H-E-B, located at the corner of César E. Chávez Boulevard and South Flores Street.

The special ceremony included remarks from Mayor Ivy Taylor, City Manager Sheryl Sculley and Todd Piland, H-E-B's executive vice president of real estate and facilities. In honor of the grand opening, special community donations of $5,000 each were made to the following nonprofit organizations: Say Si, Casa Chuck, Centro San Antonio and Gemini Ink.



"Since opening the first San Antonio H-E-B store in 1942, H-E-B has remained committed to increasing the economic vitality of our home city, San Antonio," said Todd Piland, H-E-B's executive vice president of real estate and facilities. "Our commitment to downtown and its residents continues today as we expand our corporate headquarters, open the South Flores Market H-E-B and give back to some very deserving community organizations that are near and dear to our hearts."

The 12,000-square-foot market was designed to reflect the vibrant culture of downtown San Antonio, and provide those living, working and visiting downtown with fresh food, quality items and meal-ready offerings.

"The opening of the South Flores Market H-E-B is a pivotal moment in the revitalization of downtown San Antonio," said Mayor Ivy R. Taylor. "This investment by H-E-B is not just in developing a grocery store. H-E-B developed a master plan for the expansion of its downtown headquarters which will result in an overall investment of at least $75 million and an additional 800 jobs by 2020."

The South Flores Market H-E-B is the first complete-shop grocery store to open in downtown San Antonio in many years, and will bring 50 new jobs to the rapidly-expanding area.

The H-E-B South Flores Market will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
