    The notorious tight San Antonio HEB main grocery warehouse right on the east side of i35 and rittiman rd is finally being moved to foster rd and highway 87. I go here all the time, even the yard dogs cringe when they have to back in between trucks at this location. You might wait 30 minutes while many stack up and to sit behind someone backing up. When the guy in receiving office told me this it was def a sigh of relief. Told me two more weeks at time, so by end of March 2019 should have a new large location he says.

    I come here almost every month and am a decent backer but it’s still a pita most days. #### good news, I hope.

    HEB ...what a rat hole. Years ago I spent a lot of time there waiting to bump a dock (like 12 - 15 hours) then get robbed by the lumpers or else you can grab a hand jack and unload it yourself . For years they've been on my do not load list. I'd go shovel s#*! Before hauling anything to them.
     
    Dave_in_AZ and Dale thompson Thank this.
  3. it wasn't quite as bad as Houston finding the Houston location was a battle in itself if you weren't familiar around that 290 area and he would drive around in circles all night LOL

    I forget where but I went to the HEB chip plant in that area it was difficult to back on the tatoe dump. Truck was slopped down when trailer was level, than had to unhook.

    Use to deliver there every once in a while. Hated it every time. No real place to park safely, and the mad rush to get into a door
