For eight years, Mansfield residents have been eagerly awaiting H-E-B to open a supermarket in town. And this week, they will finally be rewarded.

The San Antonio-based grocery will open a 122,000-square-foot Mansfield store at 6 a.m. June 26 at 1670 East Broad St.

When H-E-B  purchased 28 acres at the southeast corner of US 287 and East Broad Street in 2016, Mansfield residents got excited and they have waited patiently (and sometimes impatiently) for the store to open.

After H-E-B broke ground in February 2023, the anticipation became even more intense.

And this week, all that patience will pay off. In addition to a gas station and car wash, the Mansfield store will feature:

• A True Texas BBQ with both in-store and drive-thru

• Bakery featuring handmade artisan breads, cakes and in-store made, warm tortillas

• Deli department with an expansive cheese selection and charcuterie station

• Sushiya offering handmade sushi selections made in-store daily and an Asian grill with rice bowls, teriyaki and more

• H-E-B Meal Simple with fresh, convenient chef-inspired meals prepared in store

• Cooking Connection with live demonstrations and samplings for easy recipes to make at home

• Produce section with large organic and Texas-grown selections

• Meat market with Prime, natural and organic meats, and fully cooked options

• Expansive selections in grocery and general merchandise departments such as dairy, frozen foods, baby, and seasonal

• Blooms floral department, offering online ordering and delivery service

• As the No. 1 beer and wine retailer in Texas, the store has an extensive craft beer and wine section with sampling station

• Healthy Living department with bulk food items, sports nutrition products and supplements

• Texas Backyard department, featuring plants, pottery, grills and outdoor essentials

• Beauty department with a wide selection of cosmetics and other beauty items

• Pet department featuring pet toys and treats as well as Heritage Ranch by H-E-B pet food, where 1 percent of sales from the product line supports Texas animal shelters

• Household Essentials department with seasonal disposable plates, bowls and utensils, and Texas Tough brand, including Texas Tough value pack with storage bags in one easy-to-use box

With so much excitement around opening day, the Mansfield Police Department is braced for an overwhelming crowd. All access to the Mansfield store will be from the northbound US 287 frontage road. There will be no access from East Broad Street or the adjacent Mitchell Road during the busy opening.

People on East Broad Street will need to take the southbound exit on US 287, then continue south on the frontage road to the U-Turn at the end of the roadway. Take the U-Turn. After the U-Turn, there will be an entrance to H-E-B on the right.

H-E-B is also excited about the opening of its second Tarrant County store.

“It is an honor to work with the Mansfield Mayor, city council and wonderful city staff to make this store possible,” said Mabrie Jackson, Managing Director, H-E-B Public Affairs. “They have been wonderful partners and we look forward to serving the Mansfield community, offering an exceptional shopping experience and fresh quality products with our everyday low prices.”
