Wimberley Grand Opening


A Bigger and Better H-E-B coming Sept.18 for Wimberley:
14411 RR 12
Wimberley, TX 78676

Like every H-E-B, the store is designed with the neighborhood in mind. The one-of-a-kind store features a contemporary Hill Country style with large, high windows that pour in natural daylight, offers produce and plants from local growers, and incorporates local art pieces and building materials throughout.

Store Highlights

  • Repurposing Celebrated Materials from Bowen Intermediate School:
    • The gym floor is used throughout the store in décor and signage, and still features the original tape markings.
    • The school bleachers were used to build the chef's hat at the Cooking Connection station, the aisle number signage, and on the walls throughout the store.
    • The school's softball scoreboard was saved and is used in the Produce department to keep a tally on the amount of organic products offered in the store.

    Celebrating the Artistry of Wimberley:
    • Doug Moreland, a local musician and chainsaw artist, carved a tree felled in the Memorial Day Floods into a custom bike rack which is positioned in front of the store.
    • Wimberley Glassworks created custom light fixtures used as the checkout stations lights to indicate when they are open. The glass changes color when the lights are turned on.

    Growers Gathering:
    • On June 12, H-E-B hosted a Grower's Gathering with local growers to ensure the best of Wimberley is showcased in the store. Available at opening is fresh, local produce from Hays County, including lettuces and greens from Lily Pad Farm (San Marcos) and herbs, micro greens, and lettuces from Bella Verdi Farms (Dripping Springs).

    Commitment to Environmental Stewardship:
    • The store will feature energy efficient features like refrigerated cases with added doors that could lower energy consumption by as much as 70 percent; an abundance of large, high windows that will conserve the use of electrical energy and provide natural lighting for a comfortable shopping experience; LED energy-saving lights throughout the store and parking lot; and a water quality system to collect rainwater and condensation for re-use in irrigating the landscape.
