CultureMap Story

Todays culturemap has a story about HEB being rated best grocery store in America by Business Insider. Where is the store that is featured in the article?

  1. Looks like most of the indoor pics and the first front of the store pic are of the 51st street location at Mueller airport.

      Yes definitely. I couldn't find that late last night, being a wee bit gimlet-eyed. Good article, though. Makes me appreciate HEB even more; a working stiff's purveyor. My sister shops at Randall's because she lives near 6th and MoPac. Granted, the oltorf congress HEB is weird. I tell her that she is paying over 10% more to shop there. It is hard to purchase something there when you remember the price at HEB for the same thing. I'm also fortunate to be 3 min from burnet/2222 HEB. I'm often there at least twice a day.

    2. I love HEB, but this is more of an "xx reasons why xx is great" opinions piece than a "rating." For example, reasons why it's the best include "Texas shaped tortilla chips" and "funny promotions."

      The link I'm referring to:
