Grand Opening of First Harris Teeter in Baltimore, Md.

Grand Opening of First Harris Teeter in Baltimore, Md.

Charlotte, N.C. – In April 2011, Harris Teeter shared plans to open a seventh store in Maryland. Today, the company is pleased to announce its 61,000 square foot, two-story location will open Dec. 7, 2011 at 8 a.m.  To celebrate the completion of its first Baltimore location, Harris Teeter is hosting a private event called Taste of Teeter Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2011 to introduce community members to the H.T. Difference.

Located in an urban mixed-use environment, Harris Teeter’s first Baltimore store reflects the lifestyle and desires of its customers. The company is placing a strong emphasis on fresh foods, items-to-go and perishable items in its McHenry Row location.  Architecturally, the store design offers more glass and skylights; an atrium, stainless steel fixtures; and a four level parking garage.

Harris Teeter is also applying for LEED® certification for this location.  The company is committed to sustainable, energy efficient designs, and the store features recycling centers in the lobby and boasts additional energy and environmental design components including freezer cases designed with LED lighting and water-saving devices.  Additional green features include electric vehicle charging stations and an integrated refrigeration and HVAC system that utilizes high efficient condensing and high efficient water source heat pump technology. An 85,000 square foot office building in McHenry Row has already received GOLD LEED certification.

Harris Teeter has also committed to supporting the Baltimore community. In anticipation of its new store, the company signed multi-year sponsorship packages with both South Baltimore Little League and South Baltimore Youth Soccer League.  The company is also donating 125 ‘Holiday Dinner Bags,’ each with enough food to feed a family of four, to Fort McHenry Business Association.  The Association will assemble the bags and offer them to South Baltimore Emergency Relief for distribution to community members-in-need.
