Default HEB, what are you thinking...

After work this evening, we went into HEB and were picking up last minute things for Saturday's tailgate. Well, when we got up to the cashiers stand, I noticed those reuseable bags, and they were all Dallas Cowboys...ALL OF THEM!
So I told the cashier that what is HEB thinking, this is Texans country, not Cowgirls land. I then said what a joke, HEB is the sponsor for the Texans Tailgater of the Year and Game...so what a joke this is seeing you sell Cowboys junk.
The kid said there are tons of fans here that like Dallas, and I said it is not the point, this is Houston and the Texans play here..
Well I just emailed HEB corporate and told them of my disgust. I told them I will not be shopping there for the remainder of the season, for tailgating or our regular stuff, and that I would tell other friends and ticket holders of that as well. Now you all don't have to do what I am doing, but for HEB to be the Texans sponsor for Tailgater or the year and then sell Dallas stuff at the counter, well then , they lost me. So now they are aware that Randalls or Walmart will now get my home and tailgating dollars.
Email HEB if you feel the same as I do, or not, either way, I'm done with them.

Hm. That would annoy me, too.

I'm in Austin, though - so I'm used to it. Right now in the entrance to the HEB I use, there's a GIGANTIC PILE of Dallas Cowboy packaged charcoal, lighter fluid, etc.

The only Texans stuff I've seen in the store are some Texans beer coozies (sp?), and some Texans gardening gloves.

Which - is better than the amount of Texans stuff they carried two years ago, which was NOTHING.

Same goes for Wal Mart! Five racks of Cowboy stuff, one tiny rack of Texan stuff! Kroger has been my fav. I found a lot of cool stuff, like pencils, decals, stickers, ticket holder, styafoam (sp) coolers, folders for school kids, etc. Just nick/nack stuff, BUT, NO Cowboy stuff at all!! I was impressed! They have coke cans with Texan logo, as well as chips. Don't know how long this will last, but, I'll take it and give them props for being loyal to our team. I gave them a bad time for carrying VY sausage though. They placed it right next to Earls, and I about had a fit! Told the manager that was an insult to one of the NFLs greatest players! He got a good laugh out of my rant, but, he moved VY's sausage to another rack, WAY BELOW Earls!! lol Kinda fun watching his face when an old lady like me gave him such a bad time! It was all in fun!

Default Re: HEB, what are you thinking...

I love the Texans a lot, but to boycott a grocery store because they don't sell apparel from my favorite team? That seems a little over the top The cowboys aren't even in our division. If the company makes money selling the 'boys stuff, let them. If the Texans are going to win over Cowgirl fans, I want it to be because the on field product is better, not because there are napkins with our logo at the checkout line.

We'll get plenty of "fans" when our team starts winning

Why give the cashier an earful? Not like they have a single say in the matter. Just doing their job.

Go see the store manager.

Yep. Us central Texans are used to it, since we are in between both cities we are used to getting NOTHING Texans......it blows.

That's how I found you fine fans, I got so pissed about no coverage I started looking on the net for some Texans fellowship, news, anything I could find. And that's how I ended up on this MB.

Rep for you Hobie.

Nothing more annoying than meeting Cowboys fans out here that aren't from Dallas.

This is Texans country and that should be the stuff sold here. The thing is just wait until the Texans eventually become a power house and so many of these chicken shit fans that claim they don't care about the Texans out here will jump on the bad wagon like a bunch of flies on dog shit. I'll always root for the Texans rain sleet or snow. I've hated so many of their moves and been so frustrated with this franchise since it's inception, but it's still my team and always will be as long as they remain in Houston, because that's what being a Houston fan is all about.

Not the point.. Matters to me not, they are just the closest to the house, but when you are the sponsor of the Houston Texans tailgater of the Year, and you have to basically whore yourself with HEB stuff to get them to look at your stuff, then not sell Texans stuff, well then, that's where I have the problem. Kroger or Wal-mart can take my money now, they are a little farther out, but hey, everyone has their own reasons for doing what they do..

HEB store in The Woodlands has 85% Texans gear, 15% cowgirls. They may just be putting out what was shipped to them by location.

It is called marketing and good business. If HEB does not wish to do either of these things in Houston then they reap what they sow. Last year here in austin we had a station that posted all over their website HOME of the Texans. yet they only showed one Texans game, the game we played the cowgirls. To me that is false advertising. HEB claims they are the Texans store and to not have any Texans stuff is flatout being a lying bastard.

I remember that! And as a fan base, we rose up with an email attack on them, and they soon after removed any reference to being "home of the Texans."

Pricks.

I'll say this though guys. As much as that annoys me, I won't be boycotting my grocery shopping of HEB. I simply can't do that. I like their stores far better than any others and their products as well. I have 3 different HEB's that I currently go to now, and I love them all for different reasons. Nice to let them know how we all feel, but I gots to have me some HEB shopping man.

That is the problem with this. where do you shop if you want to send a message? Randalls is to expensive and is there anything else near by.

If you hate comcast the only other way you can go is sat. Which is BS

Sorry, but it's not that serious. It's a grocery store. It's not like they screwed me out of a ton of money or told me a bunch of lies like Comcast does several times a year. HEB can't even be remotely compared to a company like Comcast. Not even close. I save a ton of money by going to HEB and they have by far the best products at their stores in my opinion in this city. I'm not going to completely stop shopping there because they have more Cowboys apparel then Texans stuff. I can understand sending an email and explaining the disdain for it and complaining and maybe even making that threat, but I'm not going to completely change my grocery shopping habits over something like that. They're a business at the end of the day. If they have a lot higher demand selling Cowboys apparel, then that's typically what businesses do. They purchase what their consumers want to buy. The fact is that you live in a city that has a ton of Cowboys fans despite the fact that the Texans play here. HEB isn't going to miss out on opportunities for profit, just because they're selling Cowboys apparel in Houston.

Yep, I can't jump on this wagon either. I freaking hate Wal-Mart with a blood red passion. There isn't a Randall's near by, but they're expensive as hell anyway. Plus they didn't sell booze for years which erked me. The only option left would be Kroger and the one by me is just, well, nasty. I applaud your effort though.

Just a thought, Maybe all the Texans "swag" that they had already sold and now all they have left is the Dallas stuff which no one will buy?
