New HEB Plus in Copperas Cove

I finally made my first trip to the new HEB Plus in Copperas Cove ...

HEB-Plus

I'd been sent on a mission to retrive some chocolate covered strawberries.

That's quite the Valentine's day scam they've got going. $5.49 for five strawberries. lol, next year I'm just going to get a carton of strawberries and a bag of chocolate chips to melt so I can dip them myself. :-)

But back to the new HEB ...

In case you've never been to Texas, HEB is an acronym for Here Everything's Better. Judging by how packed the parking lot has been since the new store opened about 2 weeks ago, I think it's safe to say that this is many Texan's favorite store. And this one is apparently special since it's an "HEB Plus" .. which from what I can gather means that it's not only bigger than the old store, but it also carries some non-grocery items like t-shirts, electronics and small furniture pieces. To be honest, I didn't spend a lot of time exploring the store today, being Valentine's Day and all. The chocolate covered strawberry table was right at the front, so I was pretty much in an out.

This HEB Plus is the anchor store of the new Five Hills Shopping Center. Right now the only other establishment that's opened so far is Whataburger (also a Texas tradition). But with 9 more acres of lots, I'm sure we'll end up with plenty more places to shop ... especially after the new Hwy 9 & US 190 bypass roads are finished.

Our adopted home town seems to have a bright future. I think we chose well. :-)

  1. Todd,
    Great picture of the new HEB Plus in Copperas Cove. Great picture....what camera did you use to make this one with?
    Yummy, those chocolate dipped strawberries makes me want to reach in and grab one. Funny how you misread something someone else types, LOL. I laughed when I read your statement "next year I’m just going to get a carton of strawberries and a bag of chocolate chips to melt so I can dip them myself. " sounded like you were going to dip yourself :). Sorry I misread it the first time. After going back and rereading, I got tickled at myself for, LOL :)
    What Air Force are you stationed at? and how far and what direction are you from Abilene, TX? I drove to Abilene many times to visit, but can't remember the namem f the Air Force he was stationed at. I did have to drive trough Dallas, TX to get to Abilene.
    Happy Valentines Day to you and your family. Hope you had a great one. I'm glad you love your bright future home there.

  2. Hi Cille,

    I Hope you had a happy Valentine's day too. We actually live near Fort Hood (Army post). I do have to drive up to Dyess AFB (in Abilene) from time to time. It's about a 3 hour drive from here. You'll have to let me know if you're ever over this way again.

    Oh yea, and the picture was taken with my phone. ;-)
