The H.E. Butt Grocery Co., a San Antonio-based chain, has purchased nine acres of land in the Katy community for the development of a new H-E-B store. The firm will construct a 78,000-sf store at the corner of Mason Road and Highland Knolls.

The site was purchased from DHK Development, which was represented by CB Richard Ellis. A smaller H-E-B store in Katy will be closed when the new store opens in the first quarter of next year.
