The H-E-B grocery store, 809 N. Gray St., in downtown Killeen is scheduled to close Sunday, leaving only two grocery stores in the city north of Interstate 14. For shoppers without easy access to transportation, that is a problem.
“H-E-B is a very reputable company, and it is providing for a poorer part of town,” Killeen resident Randall Florey said. “Is the city really going to let a pillar of the community leave without trying everything to save the H-E-B downtown? ... If that store closes, a lot of people will be impacted.”
