The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the consumption habits of Americans and people around the world. One of the most demanded services are the grocery stores, an essential business in every community.

In fact, during the last months supermarkets have had to adapt their operations to the high demand of certain products, increase online and pick-up services, and apply preventive measures to protect their workers and customers, and thus ensure the continuity of its operations in a "safety mode".

In this line, the Food and Wine magazine launched a ranking of the best supermarkets in the United States, where the Texan chain H-E-B stands out in the first place.

"From the roving band of mariachis enlisted by one store manager at the height of the panic buying phase, to a useful assistance program for customers trying to access federal stimulus funds, to the mid-crisis launch of an initiative selling prepared foods from top regional chefs like Chris Shepherd, the home of Here, Everything’s Better, a store nearly everybody already liked, did the most possible to lock down Texans’ undying affection. What was already good—the affordable prices on a wide range of high-quality own-brand products, the in-store tortillerias, the excellent curbside pickup program—seemed even more important now. There are those who think they are shopping at the best supermarkets in the country, and then there are the H-E-B shoppers who know this for a fact", the magazine mentioned.

H-E-B is an American privately held supermarket chain based in San Antonio, Texas, with more than 340 stores throughout the U.S. state of Texas, as well as in northeast Mexico. The company also operates Central Market, an upscale organic and fine foods retailer.
