ABILENE, Texas -- San Angelo is getting a second H-E-B grocery store.

There, however, are no current plans to open a second H-E-B in Abilene, even though the company in 2011 purchased almost 20 acres of land - part of which is the old Lacks furniture store - off of Buffalo Gap Road near Antilley Road.

"We currently have no future plans for Abilene but will keep you posted," H-E-B spokeswoman Julie Bedingfield told KTXS.

There's currently one H-E-B in Abilene - at 1345 Barrow.

Meanwhile, information on file with the City of San Angelo shows the company's projected investment on the new H-E-B store to be $16.5 million. It will be located at 5502 Sherwood Way.

Bedingfield confirmed the plans for the second San Angelo store along with a planned opening for fall 2017.

She said the new store will offer "curbside service so customers can order online and have it ready to be picked up at their convenience."

The new San Angelo H-E-B will also have a fuel station and carwash, and offer plants, pottery, furniture, and grills for purchase.

San Angelo's existing H-E-B is located at 3301 Sherwood Way.
