San Antonio-based HEB Grocery Co. has acquired two more pieces of property in Tarrant County, adding to speculation that the South Texas supermarket chain is plotting an expansion in North Texas.
In November, the company bought a 17.8-acre tract at the northeast corner of Cheek-Sparger Road and Heritage Avenue in the Glade Parks development in Euless in November, deed records show. That fast-growing shopping center has already attracted several retailers including Belks, Dicks Sporting Goods and Dave & Buster’s.
And in December, the grocer bought an 18.2-acre tract at the southeast corner of U.S. 287 and Bond Ranch Road in north Fort Worth.
HEB is a leading grocer in San Antonio and Austin. It also operates Central Market, which has stores in Fort Worth and Southlake, and it already owns several vacant parcels in Tarrant County and other parts of the Metroplex.
In Tarrant County, its holdings include land off Quail Valley Drive and North Tarrant Parkway; Boat Club and Bailey-Boswell roads, and Lake Ridge Parkway in Grand Prairie, according to deed records.
The company has declined to talk about its future plans for the properties. The chain has HEB grocery stores in Burleson, Granbury and Cleburne.
