H-E-B ranked top retailer in Texas, breaks into top 20 nationwide
AUSTIN, Texas —
San Antonio-based H-E-B is not only the top retailer in Texas, it's now one of the top 20 retail chains in the United States.
H-E-B came in at number 20 on the annual list of American retailers released by The National Retail Federation, ahead of companies like Starbucks, Chick-fil-A, and Kohl's.
The list ranks the industry's companies according to sales numbers. In 2017, H-E-B nabbed $21.94 billion in sales at its 330 stores.
That store number is lower than most of the companies ahead of H-E-B in the rankings, including #1 Walmart at 5,328 stores and #2 Kroger with 3,902.
Earlier this year, Business Insider named H-E-B the "best grocery store in the US."
