H-E-B Updated Store Hours and Operations April 22, 2020

H-E-B Updated Store Hours and Operations

To better serve our customers, H-E-B will expand its temporary hours of operation at stores across Texas. Starting on Monday, April 27, H-E-B stores will open at 7 a.m. and close at 10 p.m. until further notice.

With an improving supply chain and stronger product availability, our stores have the capacity to serve more customers throughout the day while providing the products they want at our everyday low prices. Along with our new hours, we continue to ease product limits on many items and customers will start to notice many popular departments reopen, such as our bakery, deli and floral departments.

Most H-E-B Pharmacies will continue to operate from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and their normal weekend hours.

Our top priority remains protecting the health and safety of our partners and customers. Even with our extended hours, our stores remain diligent in following H-E-B’s strict hygiene and sanitation measures as well as proper social distancing protocols. We have dedicated teams of Partners and COVID Action Managers who are trained to ensure sanitation and social distancing procedures are properly followed. All partners in customer-facing roles are required to wear masks. This includes partners in all parts of our business that are in close contact as well as vendors.

Additional protective measures include Plexiglass partitions at all checkstands, metered entry into stores, crowd control guidelines to manage customer traffic, deep cleaning and sanitizing of stores and hard surfaces as well as fuel stations throughout the day, and contactless H-E-B Curbside and Home Delivery to limit direct interaction. Our partners are directed to stay home if they feel ill.

As we continue to monitor the spread of the pandemic, we are following guidance and advice from medical professionals and the CDC to make the best decisions regarding the health and safety of our partners, customers and the communities we serve.

Currently, all Joe V’s Smart Shop locations are open daily from 7 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Starting Monday, April 27, Central Market stores will change their store hours to 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Mi Tienda locations will update store hours to 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Restaurant operations

To serve you better, we have made the decision to temporarily close some of our restaurants so our Partners can assist customers in stores. H-E-B stores remain open but Flaming Bird, South Flo Pizza, Table 620, 3009, Oaks Crossing, The Roastery Meyerland and some True Texas BBQ locations will be closed until further notice. Temporarily closing our restaurants will allow us to continue to focus on serving our customers and replenish products to H-E-B stores. We’ll reopen all our restaurants as soon as we’re able.

The following True Texas BBQ locations are open daily for to-go orders only from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., or until they run out. All orders are to-go only. No alcohol, brewed tea or sauce pumps. To better service our stores, we are using an alternate supply chain, and what is served may differ from normal selection. Our focus is to provide additional food options for customers.

In-store operations

In-store departments and events

As we adapt to serve our customers, our communities need to adapt to temporary changes in the way we run our stores. To provide the best service, customers may see changes and limited services in our bakery, deli and floral departments, as well as our Showtime and Cooking Connection stations. Partners dedicated to these areas will temporarily support our customer experience in store as well as H-E-B Curbside pickup and Home Delivery operations.

Please remember that while preparation is important, panic is not necessary. We encourage preparedness but there’s no need to overbuy. H-E-B has plenty of product and it arrives daily. We are in this as a community and it’s important to keep calm. Together, we can do our part to #SlowtheSpreadTexas.
