Grocery competition heats up

Grocery competition in Northwest Houston is about to get hotter with the announcement of Sprouts Farmers Market securing a location in the Spring Cypress Village center. Kroger and HEB already have stores in the Spring Texas area and in June of 2012, Trader Joe's opened at Kuykendahl in Woodlands Parkway in the Woodlands. But Trader Joe's isn't the only grocer that has realized there are more mouths to feed from the continued population growth in Northwest Houston. ALDI's has started construction on a store across from HEB...Continue Reading!

HEB gets a new neighbor – ALDI’s under construction

ALDI Food Store #126 has been planned for 2302 FM 2920 in Spring Texas.

I guess there is nothing like a little friendly competition in the grocery store business. At an estimated cost...Continue Reading!

Blackberries in Season

Last Sunday on my way home from showing homes in the Woodlands, I stopped off at Neal's Berry Market to check on this year's crop of blackberries. With the rain we've had this year I was hoping the crop was going to better than last year's small crop. According to the Neals', they are experiencing a  bumper crop of blackberries.  In the just first 10 days of picking, 2,250 lbs of blackberries have been picked. The berries continue to ripen every day and...Continue Reading!
