Permit issued for H-E-B curbside pickup service in Abilene


ABILENE, Texas - Online logs for permitting within the City of Abilene show a permit has been issued to H-E-B for the construction of a curbside pickup service.

The permit log shows that interior alterations will be made to the front portion of the existing store to "add a curbside pickup area."

Abilene's sole H-E-B is located at 1345 Barrow St. The company owns property near the intersection of Buffalo Gap Road and Antilley. However, H-E-B has never announced any public plans to build at the site.

Julie Bedingfield, a spokesperson for H-E-B, confirms the grocery store will soon be offering curbside pick-up in Abilene. Bedingfield says there is not yet an exact timeline for the service, but the chain is aiming for a fall launch.
