The Phoenix Business Journal reported that a Safeway-anchored shopping center has started construction at The Point at Eastmark in Mesa, AZ. It will be slightly smaller than the store that recently opened in San Tan Valley, AZ.

Not official yet, but the Randalls at Exposition Blvd and Lake Austin Blvd in Austin will likely be closing over the coming months as the property's lease comes up for renewal. UT Austin owns the property, and as of now, intends to lease it to HEB.

This property is a tight squeeze, but would likely be an excellent location for a two-level HEB. The existing Randalls store was originally opened by Safeway in the 70's before being converted to Appletree and then Randalls; it is definitely showing it's age and is drastically undersized for the amount of traffic it pulls.

Update on this Randalls: According to a Google photo from the past few days, a store closing sale has started at this location, but I cannot find any indication of a closing date yet. I'm curious if HEB will be ready to go on demolition/construction as soon as this store closes, or if there will be a lull period of 6 months to a year or so for design and permitting.
