Harris Teeter Shopper Wins New Saturn just in time for the Holidays!


Charlotte, NC - To give shoppers an incentive to re-link their VIC card between September 1 and October 31, Harris Teeter and Saturn paired up to give away a FREE vehicle to one lucky shopper! Loyal VIC customer, Susan Weddington won a new Saturn VUE, last week in Charlotte, NC.


Harris Teeter VIC Customer, Susan Weddington shows off her VIC Card in front of her new Saturn VUE.

The Harris Teeter team joined up with winner Susan Weddington and husband John at Saturn of Charlotte to pick up her new car. Once Mrs. Weddington decided on the color, the group headed to the Matthews Festival Harris Teeter store where store manager, Lisa Adams presented the keys to our lucky winner and loyal VIC customer.


Harris Teeter has donated over $7 million to schools through the Together in Education (TIE) Program. That means money for band uniforms, musical instruments, books, teacher workshops, scholarships, and much more.  This money goes back to schools in your area for needs that fall outside the ever shrinking budgets of schools.


As a mother to three school age children, winner Susan Weddington sees how schools cut back on the supplies her children need most during the school year. Through the TIE program, Susan is able to link her VIC Card and give back just by shopping at her neighborhood Harris Teeter food market. Susan’s VIC card is proudly linked to Providence High School, South Charlotte Middle School, and Elizabeth Lane Elementary all in Charlotte, North Carolina.


Harris Teeter is excited about helping support schools in the markets we serve and we look forward to the program’s continued growth and success.
