Harris Teeter Announces the Winner of its 50th Anniversary Story of the Year Contest

Ann S. Smith of Morganton, NC wins $2,500 cash from Harris Teeter

Charlotte, NC – Harris Teeter would like to congratulate Ann S. Smith of Morganton, NC for winning its 50th Anniversary Story of the Year Contest and thank all of its customers who shared stories about their favorite Harris Teeter experiences. 

Harris Teeter launched the contest as part of its 50th anniversary celebration, and Ann’s video “A New Bride Wins a Car” earned her the grand prize.  In her video, Ann talks about the day nearly 50 years ago when she attended the grand opening of our Morganton store. At the grand opening, Harris Teeter was giving away a car.  Newly married, Ann had not gotten completely used to her new last name, and her name had to be announced a few times before she realized she won the vehicle!
 
Ann earned $2,500 cash for winning the contest, but Harris Teeter offered community members additional opportunities to earn big.  Angelica Halvarsson of Mt. Pleasant, SC won the People’s Choice vote and received $1,000 in Harris Teeter gift cards.  Shoppers who took part the People’s Choice vote were also entered in a random drawing to win a $500 Harris Teeter gift card.  Maggie Lawrence of Virginia Beach, VA was the lucky winner.
