Harris Teeter is excited to open its first store in Columbia, MD on Tuesday, May 20, 2008.  Immediately following the ribbon cutting ceremony shoppers surrounding the new store are invited to a special sampling event called Taste of Teeter.

Taste of Teeter introduces shoppers to the exceptional customer service provided by Harris Teeter, in addition to the top-quality Farmers Market produce, Rancher, Reserve Angus and Naturals Beef. The store also provides an extensive selection of seafood in Harris Teeter’s Fishermans Market and a variety of deli and bakery items in the Fresh Foods Market; along with an extensive selection of national brand and private label products.

Harris Teeter would like to encourage its new shoppers to visit www.harristeeter.com and sign up for a Very Important Customer (VIC) card today.  The VIC card allows shoppers to take advantage of weekly specials, participate in VIC promotions, sweepstakes and best of all:  it is FREE!  Shoppers can also sign up for eVIC and have weekly specials e-mailed to them every Wednesday.  This service notifies customers when items they regularly buy are on sale!  It's like having a personal shopper scan the weekly ad and identify the best deals.
