AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- In the wake of Texans hitting grocery stores hard during the coronavirus pandemic, H-E-B says it will modify its store hours to give its stores a chance to restock shelves.

H-E-B will close all of its stores Saturday night at 8 p.m., and beginning Sunday all of its stores will only be open between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. until further notice.

"While we restock our shelves around the clock, much of our restocking and replenishment happens overnight when our stores are closed," the company said in a statement. "This temporary change in store hours will give our Partners extra time to work diligently overnight to better stock our shelves, allowing us to better serve our customers."

The company is also temporarily closing its in-store restaurants, and redirecting those employees to help with serving customers and replenishing products.
