Chase Manhattan Corp. will open full service, supermarket-based branches in central Texas in a bid to woo customers away from other banks in the region.

Five in-store branches are slated to open in the next two months in Austin and San Antonio -- markets identified by the $357 billion-asset New York bank as fast-growing population centers. The branches will be located in H-E-B stores. H-E-B is a Kerrville, Tex.-based food chain with 269 locations in the state and in nearby communities in Louisiana and Mexico.
