Readers say these grocery shops in Houston will open on Wednesday, 02-17-21 – up to date with new closings

Like many stores today, some grocery stores cannot open due to a lack of electricity and running water. However, Houston Food Finder’s readers report those that are actually open. If we find that these also contain packaged ice or bottled water, we add this information as well. (We also include convenience stores.)

Expect long lines and limited almost everywhere. HE-B is open today for stores in the Houston area from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (HEB also owns Central Market, Mi Tienda, and Joe V’s.)

From the pasta house: No grocery store, but this local fresh pasta producer in Tomball will deliver on Thursday, February 18th. and Friday, February 19th directly to the residents. Check the order page and selections online. “We supply the residents of Houston and the surrounding cities,” said owner Luisa Obando. “We try to get as far as Friendswood, but if we don’t get at least three orders for the more distant area and can’t justify the delivery, we’ll refund the purchase price in full.”
