Copperas Cove HEB Opening

Yvette Jackson of Killeen picks out a selection of chocolate covered strawberries during the grand opening of H-E-B Plus!, Friday, February 1, 2013 in Copperas Cove.

COPPERAS COVE — After a year of construction and several more of planning, the anchor store to the Five Hills shopping center opened for business early Friday morning.

The store, located at 2990 E. Hwy. 190, is the company's 12th H-E-B Plus in the state, according to the company’s website.

“I love it,” said Ashley Palma, a Fort Hood resident who attended opening day to shop with her two daughters. “It’s a much larger selection of food and produce and more space. The location is a benefit, too.”
