H-E-B stores will extend opening hours starting April 27


AUSTIN (KXAN) – H-E-B announced Tuesday that its stores across Texas will extend their hours of operation from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. from April 27.

Grocery giant cites improved supply and availability of products as drivers, having previously cut hours to meet major demand due to COVID-19 pandemic preparedness purchases .

The company says the product limits will begin to be relaxed and that some departments, such as the bakery and deli departments, will reopen.

H-E-B says that most of its drug store hours will remain the same, however, and will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., in addition to normal weekend hours.

In a statement, H-E-B said:

“Even with our extended business hours, our stores remain diligent in following H-E-B’s strict hygiene and sanitation measures as well as appropriate social distancing protocols. We have dedicated teams of COVID partners and action managers who are trained to ensure that sanitation and social distancing procedures are properly followed. All partners in customer contact positions are required to wear masks. This includes partners in all parts of our business who are in close contact as well as suppliers. “
