Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS -

Gro­cer H-E-B will de­but its newly ren­o­vated San Mar­cos store on Fri­day.

Lo­cated at 641 E. Hop­kins St., the gro­cery store has been ex­ten­sively re­mod­eled and ex­panded by 12,220 square feet, mak­ing it 87,873 square feet.

“Ev­ery­thing about the ex­panded store, from its de­sign to its fresh of­fer­ings, was specif­i­cally tai­lored to meet the needs and de­sires of this com­mu­nity,” said Bruce Sch­nei­der, unit di­rec­tor for the San Mar­cos H-E-B.

Ad­di­tions in­clude beer on tap, an out­door seat­ing area with mu­sic and ac­tiv­i­ties for chil­dren and a cafe with wire­less In­ter­net. The store also has bak­ery, deli, flo­ral and seafood de­part­ments, as well as a drive-through phar­macy.

Forty new em­ploy­ees have been hired, the com­pany said.
