As the Four Points H-E-B is a few months away from celebrating 20 years in business, it now introduces Curbside shopping.

“We are excited to expand our Curbside and delivery services to the Four Points H-E-B and provide customers with another convenient way to shop,” said Gary Hestand, director of Four Points H-E-B, located at the intersection of RM 620 and RM 2222.

H-E-B- uses the slogan “We shop. You relax!” with is new local offering that was launched in 2015 at some of its 150 Curbside locations.

Customers go to heb.com/curbside, create an order and schedule a pick-up time.

“Arrive at the H‑E‑B curbside and we’ll load your groceries in your car,” Hestand said.

Orders can be placed between 7:30 a.m. and 9 p.m. and at least four hours prior to pick-up. A $4.95 fee is charged for the service. Coupons can be used at checkout.

The Four Points H-E-B opened in May 1999 — and will be celebrating 20 years of business in 2019.

In 2008, the 56,000-square-foot store went through a $7 million, 15,000-square-foot expansion adding to its pharmacy and fresh produce sides. It also doubled the floral department, expanded the fresh baked bread and meat and seafood departments then. The Cooking Connections kitchen was built then too.

This fall, the Curbside renovations added more square footage near the pharmacy side of the store, adding both deep freeze and refrigerated sections.

H-E-B hosted a West Austin Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony on Dec. 18.
