Harris Teeter Opens New Store in Rea Village
Employing over 110 people, new store ready to serve community

Charlotte, NC - Harris Teeter is proud to announce the grand opening of its newest store in Rea Village in Charlotte, NC.

"Customers will be able to find a wide range of international favorites as well as fresh sushi, sandwiches and ready-to-go food, and as always, the freshest selection of seafood, meats and produce," notes Lisa Adams, Manager. In the grocery business for nearly 17 years, Adams knows how to tailor a store to the needs of the community and has set about to do just that with our newest Charlotte store.

The store is 40,000 square feet, with eight checkout lanes, and four USCAN stations. Customers can pull up at the Parcel Pick Up area and baggers are always on hand to help carry groceries to a customer's car if they need help. "Harris Teeter's continued commitment to excellence in customer service will be obvious at every turn," said Scott Warley, Co-Manager.

This location will also have a full service Pharmacy, and as a grand opening special, customers can get a free $10 Harris Teeter gift card, just for switching their prescriptions to the pharmacy at our new store.

This store will also boast of a full-service wine department. "We will offer the selection and quality of beer and wine that Harris Teeter customers have come to expect at competitive prices," said Remington Purdy, Wine Consultant. And I'll be on hand to personally answer any questions and to offer suggestions on wine pairings for a large dinner party or simply dinner for two," he added.

Grand Opening events will be ongoing for the next month. There will be fun activities for kids and families as well as important health screenings in our new pharmacy. Customers can sample new products and chefs will be on hand to share easy recipes that they can try at home.
