SAN ANTONIO – H-E-B has decided to shift delivery hours for pharmacy and senior customers as more and more Texas cities issue tighter restrictions to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Starting March 23, pharmacy delivery from select stores will be available from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. and Saturday delivery will be offered from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Hours for the majority of in-store pharmacies will remain 8 a.m.-8 p.m. for weekdays, with normal weekend hours.

H-E-B adds stricter purchase limits on more items to ‘protect the supply chain’

The pharmacy delivery services will be free in select areas and someone 18 or older must be present to sign for the delivery, according to H-E-B.

Nearly 50 H-E-B stores in the San Antonio area are eligible for delivery. To see a full list of eligible stores, click here.
