H-E-B has announced plans to open its first store in Lubbock.
The location is slated to be the San Antonio-based grocery giant’s northernmost store.
The 120,000-square-foot store is set to open late next year and will include curbside pickup, a gas station, car wash and H-E-B's True Texas BBQ restaurant.
The Lubbock H-E-B will be located at 114th and Quaker, about a 15-minute drive from the Texas Tech campus.
Current and former Lubbockites were quick to react on Twitter.
