SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas-based H-E-B, one of the nation's largest regional grocery retailers with more than 370 stores in Texas and Mexico, announced today that 50,000 shelf stable foods, drugstore and general merchandise products are now available to purchase and ship at HEB.com.
Products include H-E-B's popular store brands like Central Market Organics and Cafe Ole Taste of Texas Coffees, as well as a large variety of national brands. Orders can be shipped throughout Texas, to 46 states within the continental U.S. and to military bases worldwide. Online shopping begins today and is the perfect way to ship a gift of H-E-B brand products to friends and family in time for the holidays.
Popular Texas brands that are only available at H-E-B stores are now available to purchase and ship at HEB.com. The new "Totally Texas" page at HEB.com/texas includes products made in Texas or inspired by Texans like Whataburger Whatafries and Spicy Ketchup, Franklin Barbecue Sauce made in Austin, H-E-B chips, sodas, salsas and more.
HEB.com will also offer a broad assortment of general merchandise items, including the popular Mexican-inspired Cocinaware cookware line made exclusively for H-E-B.
H-E-B Wherever You Are
With an assortment of products larger than most online retailers, and even larger than some H-E-B brick and mortar stores, shopping at HEB.com makes it easy and convenient for anyone to order their favorite products for shipping to home, family or friends.
For time-starved shoppers who want to stock up on grocery, general merchandise, drugstore and beauty products, HEB.com makes it easy to purchase items anywhere anytime. If a shopper's neighborhood H-E-B doesn't carry a particular specialty item, they can turn to HEB.com to have it shipped to home or office.
In Texas cities without an H-E-B store, like El Paso, Amarillo and Texarkana, shoppers can simply visit HEB.com where the products they love are just a click away. And for out of state Texans that long for their Lone Star State favorites, HEB.com makes it easy to order and ship favorite foods from back home.
"We've been receiving calls for decades from Texans around the country who miss their favorite foods from home like H-E-B Texas-Shaped Corn Tortilla Chips and H-E-B Cafe Ole Taste of Texas Coffees," said Martin Otto, Chief Merchant and Chief Financial Officer of H-E-B. "Now, even if you move outside of Texas, you'll still have a 'neighborhood H-E-B' just a click away."
Taking Care of Our Troops
In addition to shipping across Texas and to 46 states, HEB.com will ship to military bases worldwide. With Veterans Day this week, the San Antonio-based company donated its first HEB.com shipments to service members based in Texas and around the world.
"Anything that reminds our troops of home is a big deal," said Retired Army Lieutenant General Rick Lynch. "When our service men and women are half way around the world something as simple as their favorite chips and salsa can lift their spirits during a long deployment."
Convenience and Everyday Low Prices
HEB.com is convenient for shoppers who want to stock up no matter where they live. All customer orders are delivered using standard shipping and in some Texas cities may arrive the very next day. Orders are shipped in one to three days and can be sent throughout Texas, to 46 states (excludes California, Alaska and Hawaii), and to any Army Post Office or Fleet Post Office (APO/FPO) address in the world.
Shipping fees vary and average $5 to $10 per order. Some products require a minimum order quantity, but all products are priced at the same everyday low prices shoppers can find in-store.
"No Hassle" Returns
H-E-B has created a "no hassle" return policy for online orders. Any product ordered online can be returned to any H-E-B store anywhere for an immediate full refund, or products can be sent back using free shipping.
H-E-B operates more than 370 stores in Texas and Mexico. Recognized for its fresh food, quality products, convenient services, and a commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainability, H-E-B strives to provide the best customer experience at everyday low prices.
