San Antonio-based H-E-B opened its first Dallas-Fort Worth store Wednesday, giving folks in Frisco their first taste of the beloved Texas grocery giant's shopping experience.

While locations of the chain's high-end Central Market concept have served DFW shoppers for more than two decades, the 118,000-square-foot Frisco store is its first standard-format grocery in the region.

“Opening our flagship H-E-B format in the DFW area has been an aspirational goal of ours for many years, and the company has a long-term commitment to serve a broad range of customers and communities across North Texas,” Central Market Division President Stephen Butt said in a news release.
