H-E-B says it will open its Central Texas locations from noon to 5 p.m., and Fiesta Mart said on its Facebook page they’ll open at 8 a.m. These openings include stores in Dripping Springs and Wimberley.

Randall’s stores are also set to open at 8 a.m., but officials there want people to call their local stores and check on hours as the stores can adjust to fit conditions.

Walmart says a few stores, both Walmart and Sam’s Club, are open. The retail giant has a map showing the status of all its stores, but the ones open in the Austin area are:

  • 201 Walton Way, Cedar Park
  • 10901 Lakeline Mall Dr., Austin (Sam’s Club)
  • 9700 Capital of Texas Highway (Sam’s Club)

  • 9300 S. IH-5 Suite B, Austin
  • 9900 S. IH-35, Austin (Sam’s Club)
  • Marble Falls

Whole Foods Market stores across Austin planned to open at 12 p.m., but due to power issues, officials said only its Domain location would open.
