San Antonio shoppers love their H-E-Bs, but some stores are busier than others.
SafeGraph Data tracks grocery store foot traffic through geospatial data. The data is not an exact metric, as SafeGraph only analyzes the data available to it. Visits are defined as a stay at the location lasting longer than four minutes.
The map below shows the total number of visits at each H-E-B location over the past 12 months.
According to the data, the Schertz H-E-B location topped all others, logging 127,954 visits over the past year. That store may see some relief after a new H-E-B location opens in Cibolo. The new location is not expected to open until June 2023.
The second busiest location came on the city’s Southeast Side at the H-E-B located at 3323 Southeast Military Drive.
The top 10 locations with the most visits are listed below.

In all, there are 46 H-E-B locations in the San Antonio area. The beloved grocery store chain averages more than 150,000 visits each month, according to Safegraph Data.
H-E-B plans to keep up its dominant presence in the area, looking at new locations to expand. Earlier this year, the grocery chain announced plans for a new expanded location in New Braunfels that will include a wine tasting section and a barbecue restaurant.
