Well first off I do not appreciate HEB grocery selling out to illegals. HEB sold out by opening a MI Tienda Mexican grocery store and closed the regular HEB store near by.
I do not see how this is a part of the HEB family, they do not even sell ha/f of what HEB stocked, all the signs around the store; like entrance, exit, etc. are in Spanish.
This store is only basically here to cater to all the illegal immigrants here in Houston.
When it first opened I did visit to see what this was about, and because they closed the HEB store down.
I visited the store today and it smelled like a dirty old slaughter house, it would have made any hunger feeling one might have had vanish. I could not be in the store for very long.
A good bit of employees can not speak English, and asking 20 different employees if fig season was in, they did not know what the *** a fig was. Pathetic.
The first sell outs was Sam's Whole sell. they opened a specific store to only cater to illegal immigrants.
It is like slapping the face of every American, and even all those who became American legally.
It is like accepting the fact that were are over run by illegal immigrants and this is just another way to say, the *** with America, this is how it is now, tough ***.
***! Any needed support that our Government offers the poorer of people are being abused by all the immigrants illegally here. Food stamps, TANF, WIC, our jobs, our money, our health care, etc... And now they are catering by opening all Mexican stores. The new Mi Tienda that just opened here in Houston has all and only Mexican staff. Any other company not having their general token employees would be targeted and called racist, so this grocery store needs to be called out on the topic.
I will not shop at any location like this again, by shopping there people are just supporting the non diversity, racist store, and supporting illegal immigration. 2e598fa

OH and if you're mad bc they're catering to them because they have to speak Spanish, then you're missing all of HEB's marketing strategy, THAT'S THE POINT, for us to feel like we're at "home". sooo, yah. just don't go there if you don't like the environment. since most of the surrounding is Hispanic, they said, hey, let's make some money! so really we should be the ones mad but we don't care, we just worry about our own. ahem. what you should contemplate doing. maybe then you wouldn't be so racist. that area has ALWAYS been dense in Hispanic population. so maybe YOU should move on. first come...

Hey you, I was in Marketing class today. You know who was there? Scott from HEB, you know the guy you see on tv. The first store was in San Antonio in 1905. They made 5 other ones. Fails. You know where they took the 7th store? A border town, and that was their biggest hit. Joe V and Mi Tienda, he said are gold. You know what's a big part of Marketing? They care about PROFITS not status, where there's money, there's money, get it, or someone else will take it. So really HEB has ALWAYS tried to cater to HISPANICS. FIRST GENERATION. They won't make any more though, so don't worry, there's aren't enough first generation Mexicans throughout Houston anymore so you can stop worrying about your racism being shown everywhere.

Pretty sad if you have to generalize and compete with undocumented people. You probably did not make the wisest decisions in your life being from america and all. And given all the opportunities this great country has to offer. You know your just a "hater" or a typical nontraveled texan. Oh wait your proud to be ignorant as well right? Leave the the "true american " status to the native americans. The southwest has only been part of the US for a little over 140 yrs.. Where were your peeps then? It was still Mexico. And please remember most Mexicans (at least the ones that come to the US) are dark because they are native americans.

If you did not understand then i will explain this to you: 1.this store is a MEXICAN themed store 2. The number 1 requirement to be employed here is to be able to speak Spanish and last time I checked those were for the most part Hispanic people and 3. the store does not hire people without legal documentation!! Most of the employees there are young and are bilingual, there are only a few who don't really speak it that well and they are usually in the kitchen or tortilleria so I highly doubt that you asked 20 different employees and none of them spoke English well. When you are being interviewed here the whole interview is in Spanish because it is a REQUIREMENT! I'm sure if a black, white or Asian person who applied there and could speak, read, and write fluently in Spanish then they would be hired. And for you saying that illegal immigrants abuse the system and receive all these benefits, you are wrong once again... The government does NOT give these benefits to people without legal documentation. The store has just about every HEB store brand product as a regular HEB and yes I know because I work there and have to put up all the stuff people leave laying around so I pretty much know where every product in the store is at. HEB did not sell out, MI TIENDA is owned by HEB if anything HEB is making so much more money off of the Hispanic community with the store. Regardless we wouldn't want people like you to shop at Mi Tienda so you can take your business elsewhere because... Show more

Remember when you call a Hispanic or "Latino" Illegal, you and your ancestors are the first illegals. If you are an American, you are the new American, we are the old American, original to these lands that the Europeans stole, rape and committed genocide to obtain it illegally. Do you really want to stay in this country? Shut up and be thankful that Texas is going back to Mexico, see what is the population ratio to whites, you are a sorry, ignorant racist. Just ask God for mercy and may give it to you.

I find it absolutely amusing how upset you are about this. Yet didn't your ancestors do the same thing? Stole land from the Natives, and built their own stores on it, a slap in the face to every single Native American who was here before them. Stores to cater to those who had gotten here illegally. Karma's a *** isn't it?

I can understand the anger however I lack the understanding of its ignorance.
I am an America. I a trying my best to get to med school and pay for it. I work full time and go to school.full time as well as take care a child and my husband.
We work very hard and do not get any government assistance. I am ok with that.
My family are Hispanic and all are legal citizens.
My mother worked three jobs to raise all 7 of us and never received government aid. All of us have graduated high school and college.

The reason I say this to explain not all "mexicans" are the same.
My husband is white and he has cousins who are on government assistance.
Are all white people the same?
I struggle to get through school while balancing work and family however I manage and get by without government assistance. His cousins get all types of assistance.

Next topic. Not all Hispanics are Mexican. Many of those stores or markets cater to the Hispanic population not just Mexicans. In fact many of the Hispanics I have encountered are not from Mexico rather they are from Central America. There is a difference.

It's like calling an American white man and Australian or Greek. They look white but are different culturally.

I too get frustrated when people speak only Spanish, Indian or some Asian language. We are in America.
You don't go to an other country expecting the country to speak

Wow! The garbage that spews out of you mind is troubling. You're a sad person and my only hope is that you don't have any children to pass on your beliefs to. I'm glad that angry racist like you are a dying breed on the *** of extinction. I'll laugh as your world collapses all around you.

Your ignorance is astonishing. Companies do this because they know that is where the money is at. The old HEB on Aldine Westfield the majority of its costumers were hispanic. Not all mexicans or hispanics are illegal. I wouldn't know when it was fig season either if not for having a fig tree in my yard. Hispanics are almost the majority here in houston, so maybe if the majority was of french or italian decent we would see more billboard, restaurants, and stores catering to that group. If you are this racist you shouldn't live in neighborhood where the majority is hispanic...move to conroe.
