Texas grocery retailer H-E-B is pushing further into the c-store market by opening a new, $3 million location in San Antonio.

"H-E-B is no stranger to the convenience-store concept. But as far as expanding its footprint in San Antonio, the retailer has mostly stuck to the traditional grocery store model, until now," writes the San Antonio Business Journal.

H-E-B announced a year ago plans for its $2.7 million, 7,416-sware foot c-store near its Plus! location in San Antonio.
