There are many choices on where to grocery shop in the Katy and greater Houston area. If you are new to the area, sometimes it can be confusing on where to go, so here is a quick run down on the local stores for you:
1/ HEB-if you want a large organic section, a counter with gourmet prepared foods, a fresh Sushi bar, a great fish counter and organic meat selection-this is the store for you! Located on the corner of Fry Rd and the Grand Parkway.Â HEB has one of the largest and nicest produce sections as well.
2/ Kroger-Kroger offers shoppers a "Kroger" card-you sign up for free. Use it every time you shop and it can give you discounts on some of the store brand items, and can give you up to a 10 cent per gallon discount on gas as well(per every $100 shopped). They give an every day discount of 3 cents per gallon no matter how much you spend on groceries-as long as you use the card. Another thing that this store does for its customers is periodically mail out coupons based on your shopping habits-so you actually get coupons for stuff you normally buy.
3/ Randalls-Randalls also offers a card for its shoppers similar to the one Kroger offers. You use it for store marked discounts, and they also offer a discount on gas with the card. Randalls in much smaller in scale than Kroger and HEB, but has a nice layout and a very nice produce dept.
4/ Super Target/Super Walmart-they are both here-and if you are looking to buy in larger quantities and to save a little money these are the places for you. However, it is harder to find organic or specialty items, and the fish and meat depts. are limited.
You can find all of these stores in Katy. If you are looking for a WHOLE FOODS you will need to take the short drive to Sugar Land or into Houston!
