EMJ Construction is excited to partner with H-E-B, one of the most iconic brands in the Lonestar State, in its plans to build a new store on Main St. in Kerrville, Texas. This project comes on the heels of a successful completion of one of its newest stores in Hudson Oaks, Texas, which was also built by EMJ Construction.
While H-E-B Hudson Oaks exemplified commitment to North Texas, this new store in Kerrville demonstrates H-E-B’s commitment to the community where it all began. To pay homage to the company’s roots, part of the design element will include a decorative facade that resembles the retailer’s original store, which was located in the 800 block of Main St. and opened in 1905 as C.C. Butt Grocery Store. The Curbside logo on the store will include a Model T, which is a nod to the early days of H-E-B grocery delivery.
Along with a nod to the past, the new store, at 106,000 square feet, will also include new features such as the inclusion of True Texas BBQ, H-E-B’s lauded barbecue restaurant that was recently named best barbecue chain in Texas by Texas Monthly and a top barbecue chain in the nation by Thrillist. The gas station will also add gas pumps as well as include diesel fuel and a car wash.
“H-E-B is known for its innovation and community service, with deep roots in Texas communities,” said George Heath, Vice President, EMJ Construction. “As a company that strives to deliver unique value to our clients, partners, and colleagues, EMJ is honored to help achieve their vision for this new store that reflects just that.”
Site construction is already underway, and the new store is expected to open late 2020. The existing 79,000-square-foot Kerrville H-E-B on Main St., which opened in 1984, will close upon the opening of the new store.
