Harris Teeter is excited to open a store in Westhaven Town Center and welcome over 95 associates to our first location in Franklin, TN!  To introduce our new neighbors to the store, Harris Teeter is hosting a special event called Taste of Teeter immediately following the ribbon cutting ceremony on the 27th. At Taste of Teeter, shoppers will be able to sample a wide variety of top quality products available at Harris Teeter including Farmers Market produce, Fishermans Market shrimp, and Fresh Foods Market deli and bakery items. 

Harris Teeter will continue to host grand opening events during the first three weekends after the opening.  Friday October 30 – Sunday, November 1, Harris Teeter’s e-VIC Mobile will be at the store giving shoppers an opportunity to sign-up to be an e-VIC member. What is e-VIC? e-VIC is a free service through which our shoppers receive electronic discounts.  By signing-up for the program, shoppers will also receive notification each Wednesday when items they regularly buy are on sale; it is like having a personal shopper scan the weekly ad and identify the best deals.
 
Harris Teeter will continue hosting grand opening activities Friday, November 6 – Sunday, November 8.  The company is sending its Rancher Mobile Grill to the store so customers can sample Harris Teeter Rancher NY Strip.  During the last grand opening weekend event from November 13 – November 15, the Harris Teeter Ice Cream Truck will be at the new store and associates will distribute FREE Harris Teeter Ice Cream Sandwiches to customers. 

Prior to the grand opening, Harris Teeter would like to encourage future shoppers to visit harristeeter.com and sign up for a Very Important Customer (VIC) card.  The VIC card allows shoppers to take advantage of weekly specials and participate in weekly special promotions.  Shoppers can also sign-up for and use their VIC card at the grand opening.
