Harris Teeter introduces Harry’s Kids Activity Center in Gastonia
The Activity Center provides children with a fun experience while their parents shop.


Parents are rushing every minute of everyday trying to keep up with their children’s busy schedules.  There’s soccer, band, cheerleading, homework, summer camp, and so much more.  Harris Teeter realizes the last place kids want to spend their free time is at the grocery store. Now with the addition of Harry’s Kids Activity Center they can have some fun while their parents complete their weekly shopping.


The supervised activity center provides Harris Teeter’s Shoppers in Training with a variety of fun, educational and nutritional activities.  Kids can color, learn about healthy eating, watch videos, play computer games and make new friends. 


This is Harris Teeter’s first Harry’s Kids Activity Center.  The child care center is exclusive to Harris Teeter shoppers and is available at the Robinwood Crossing Harris Teeter on Neal Hawkins Rd in Gastonia, NC.   Children between the ages of 3 and 8 are welcome.  However, the center can only accommodate up to 15 children at any one time.  Children will be admitted on a first come, first served basis and each visit is limited to one hour.  The activity center is open from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm daily. 


To ensure the safety of our Shoppers in Training.  The customer responsible for the child must read and sign the Rules and Regulations and Release of Liability forms prior to registering the child.  The child and parent will receive a wristband.  When the customer is finished shopping they will need to show a picture ID and a their wristband to complete the check out process. Parents must stay in the store, while their child is in the Activity Center.


As a company Harris Teeter strives to provide its customers with the most convenient shopping experience possible while providing a variety of top quality products.  The addition of the Harry’s Kids Activity Center is just another way to achieve this goal.
