'H-E-B is her favorite store,': Lori Plata's replica check out lane is a hit with 2-year-old daughter

SAN ANTONIO – A San Antonio two-year-old has truly become an H-E-B partner.

Aria Plata loves going to the grocery store, but over the past couple of months has not been able to go because mom wasn’t comfortable taking her due to COVID-19.

Lori Plata did the next best thing and brought H-E-B to her daughter by creating an almost exact replica checkout lane.

Little Aria loved it and has made the whole family go through her check out lane.

“She even gets upset if we don’t properly bag our groceries,” Plata said.
