They’ll serve you a cocktail... sort of...
You can’t buy hard liquor in the store, but you can head to the bar at H-E-B’s Schertz location and drink a margarita. The in-store restaurant, 3 Double-O Nine, sells burgers, sandwiches, and more, in addition to their deliciously strong beverages. Whether you come pre-shopping or post is up to you, but the former is sure to incite a more entertaining shopping experience.
There’s a season for everything
If there’s a month, there’s a theme at H-E-B. Case in point: August is Hatch chile month where you'll find chiles embedded in surprising products like beer.
