H-E-B, the Texas grocery giant, has set its sights on expanding its presence in North Texas, announcing plans for two new stores in Murphy and Bedford/Euless. The stores will include a True Texas BBQ restaurant, curbside pickup area, fuel station and car wash, among other amenities. 

In Murphy, the store, spanning approximately 136,000 square feet, will be located at the southwest corner of FM 544 and McCreary Road, adjacent to the current CVS Pharmacy. The new location is slated to commence construction within the next year, eyeing an opening in 2026. 

“Having an H-E-B in our city is not only exciting from a sales tax revenue point of view, but as an asset to our community as a whole,” said Mayor Scott Bradley in an official statement. “They are well known for their dedication to their customers and participation in the communities they serve. I look forward to growing this partnership.”

Meanwhile, in Bedford/Euless, anticipation is also running high as H-E-B prepares to establish its presence at the northwest corner of Cheek-Sparger Road and Rio Grande Boulevard. Slated for completion in the latter half of 2026, the new store promises to deliver the same quality and service that has endeared H-E-B to customers across Texas. 

In anticipation of the H-E-B property acquisition in 2015, the municipalities of Bedford and Euless diligently prepared by formalizing an agreement. This agreement splits property and sales tax between them, as the property spans both cities. It also outlines each city's duties, including zoning, permits and public safety.

The expansion of H-E-B's presence in North Texas extends beyond Murphy and the Bedford/Euless vicinity. As previously reported by Local Profile, with the recent acquisition of 21 acres of land in Celina, Texas, at the northeast corner of Dallas North Tollway and Fred Smith Parkway, the grocery giant is strategically positioning itself to cater to the burgeoning demands of the region.
