    Montrose HEB

    I will miss the Fiesta on Dunlavy terribly. (My guess is that it will be history shortly after the opening of the new HEB). The Fiesta store is the only grocery store I've shopped at or shop at currently where the manager actually knows me and greets me and on occasion we discuss food or wine or whatever.
