H-E-B will open its new Meyerland Plaza location Jan. 29 at 4700 Beechnut St., Houston.

The 95,000-square-foot store will offer traditional H-E-B offerings, in addition to a slew of kosher offerings, including a dedicated bakery, butcher, sandwiches, and coffee shop, plus sections stocked with kosher frozen food, seafood and dairy products, said Hugh Sintic, manager for the new location, in an announcement to the Bellaire Business Association on Thursday.

The new two-story building will house 712 parking spots on two levels. The store will sit adjacent to JC Penny, and the two will share walkway space on the second floor, Sintic said.

Local Pier 1 Imports stores in Meyerland, at 110 Meyerland Plaza, Houston, and Rice Village, at 2501 Rice Blvd, Houston, will be closing their doors, though a store in River Oaks, at 1927 W. Gray St., Houston, will remain open. The closing date could not be confirmed with Pier 1 at Meyerland Plaza, though the Rice Village furniture store did confirm it was closing in late March/early April as the store liquidated its assets. The closures come amid a 450-store nationwide reduction for Pier 1, out of 942 total, the company announced in a third quarter fiscal year 2020 business update on Jan. 6.

I wonder if that means they are moving from the Galleria location (which we already knew...) but NOT relocating to another uptown/galleria location!? I thought for sure they would find a way to stay in the area (like the zadok's location or possibly even the old ethan allen location)...

interesting!

In fairness, Meyerland is a million times easier to get to than Post Oak, and there's already an Academy near Kirby facing 59 to the east and the Academy that's out towards Memorial City.

 

I hope long term that shopping center ends up full of vacancies so its owner redevelops it into something much more interesting.

that IS what is happening if you are speaking of where Dick's Sporting Goods currently is! (Post Oak Shopping Center)...That plaza should be closed by end of 2021 is my guess...

if you are talking about the plaza where Luby's is, that isn't going anywhere for a long while is my guess as it going through some changes and additions (like Kenny & Ziggy's taking over Luby's space...) but cool about DSG moving to Meyerland...you are correct it is an easy access area!

Yeah...me too.  Nowadays I go to microcenter if I need something and am not willing to wait for an online order to arrive.

Long live Microcenter.  I'm always finding excuses to go shopping there.   I've also found Microcenter pricing to be better than online when shopping for computer parts.

I've found they've got the best prices for in-person shopping (most of the time) but can frequently still find stuff cheaper online.

I like Micro Center, but preferred Fry's as the one on 45 North was more conveniently located for me. Unfortunately, Fry's has been circling the drain for some time now and their in-store inventory is a mere shadow of what it used to be. And the new Micro Center location is even less convenient than the old one was, so more often than not I wind up just going to my preferred online tech retailer (Newegg), unless I need something the same day.

I took my kid to Frys on I45N in January, since I have a $!00 gift card. There was literally nothing in the store I wanted to buy. It's a sad shadow of the former packed to teh gills with tech stuff I recall from the early days.

 

I go to MicroCenter most times, but also buy from Amazon and NewEgg.

 

As for Meyerland Plaza, I fondly recall the days when it was an actual mall, with indoor entrances to the stores.

I like both Best Buy and Micro Center. I'd hate to see Best Buy vanish, though I from what I have read they have actually been doing okay. Also they are opening new stores again for the first time in a decade. Maybe this and the Bingle location were just weak performers? The Meyerland store was close to other locations while inner NW Houston has only gotten sketchier over the last few years.

 

I noticed the big one by the Galleria and the ones in The Woodlands, Sugar Land, etc have more stuff like kitchen appliances while the oldest and smallest stores don't or that part of the store is really narrow. Also the stores in the suburbs have been remodeled to a new design scheme, so maybe that's a sign too.
