TEXAS CITY - Demolition work is underway and construction will soon begin at the site of the new H-E-B grocery store located at the Palmer Shopping Center at the corner of Hwy. 146 and north of Palmer Hwy.
In place of what was an 87,237-sf Kmart building will be a new approximately 62,000-sf H-E-B, scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
Construction should begin as soon as the rubble is cleared away.
City commissioners approved a $1.4 million tax incentive package to bring a new H-E-B store to the city in November 2014.
H-E-B operates a store at 918 20th St. N. that will close once the new location opens.
