SOUTH SHERMAN, TX is a food desert. A Food Desert is an urban area in which it is difficult to buy affordable or good-quality fresh food. We need a grocery store that offers quality products and services, and has a long legacy of community involvement. H-E-B fits that bill, plus, it's a Texas-based grocery chain! Let's get H-E-B Inc. to open a store in Sherman, Texas!
Sherman currently has five food markets that offer a variety of fresh, affordable, and healthy food options. However, NONE of those stores are located near those that live on the Southern side of town. Many residents in South Sherman lack transportation to shop at the food markets currently operating in Sherman. So, they must buy whatever groceries they can at the nearest convenience store or Dollar store. Usually, these people end up getting over-charged for cheap, nutrition-less, processed food. To make matters worse, public transportation is extremely limited in Sherman.
H-E-B Grocery is the largest grocery store chain in Texas but there isn't one even remotely close to Sherman. The official slogan for HEB is "Here Everything's Better". At HEB they have their own brand of milk, dairy products and meat. They have an excellent quality and selection of organic products. They also have a large non-food selection of cookware and housewares. H-E-B cares about their customers. You can ask anyone that lives in a city that has an H-E-B and they will tell you that it is the only grocery store they shop at. Just look at the media headlines from Hurricane Harvey, and all the great relief effort H-E-B put in. Even Austin College students could benefit from an H-E-B on the south side of town.
If you want an H-E-B in Sherman, and you care about those that are less fortunate, sign and share this petition now.
Let's show H-E-B they have fans in South Sherman!
