Grand Opening of Harris Teeter Food Market in Charleston, SC

Charlotte, NC – Harris Teeter is excited to open a new store in Charleston, SC, welcoming over 60 new associates to the company.  The new Harris Teeter will be located in St. Andrews Shopping Center.  The store is scheduled to open on Wednesday, June 10, 2009 following a ribbon cutting ceremony at 8:00am. 

Harris Teeter will bring exceptional customer service; top-quality Farmers Market produce; a full service meat market with USDA Rancher beef, HT Reserve Angus Beef, and HT Naturals Natural Beef; Fishermans Market Seafood; and Fresh Foods Market Deli/Bakery items, along with an extensive selection of national brand and private label products to the families surrounding our new store site.

To celebrate the grand opening and introduce new customers to our company, Harris Teeter scheduled a variety of parking lot activities on the first four weekends following the opening.  June 12-14, the e-VIC Mobile will be at the store offering customers a chance to sign-up for e-VIC.  e-VIC, a FREE service that notifies customers when items they regularly buy are on sale, is an extension of our Very Important Customer (VIC) card program through which shoppers have access to weekly savings on thousands of items they buy throughout the store.   That same weekend Harris Teeter has also scheduled grand opening demonstrations through which the company introduces customers to Harris Teeter’s delicious own brand products as well as national brand items.

June 19-21, the Rancher Mobile Grill will be at the new store and on June 26-28 the Ice Cream Truck will be on hand for associates to pass out free Harris Teeter Ice Cream Sandwiches to customers who need a refreshing treat to cool down in the summer heat.  There will be additional grand opening demonstrations over the July 4th holiday.
