Grand Opening of Harris Teeter in Charlotte, N.C.

Grand Opening of Harris Teeter in Charlotte, N.C.

Charlotte, N.C. – Harris Teeter is proud to welcome shoppers to the grand opening of its Plaza Midwood location on May 29, 2013 at 8 a.m.  The company closed its original Central Avenue store in June 2012, and after a year-long renovation project to build this new two-story location, is ready to welcome customers into the store. 

The project to develop a new Harris Teeter on Central Avenue marked a major milestone for Harris Teeter. Harris Teeter had not only been operating a store from this 1704 Central Avenue location since approximately 1950, but Plaza Midwood also housed the site of co-founder W.T. Harris’ first Harris Super Market.  Throughout the project, therefore, Harris Teeter paid particular attention to the company’s legacy by including in the building design components from the old location. The company also paid particular attention to the neighbors’ intense focus on the arts by designing a building inspired by the industrial deco motif seen along the Central Avenue corridor.  

Your Central Avenue Harris Teeter will be open 6 a.m. - midnight, seven days a week, and the Harris Teeter pharmacy will be open seven days a week, as well.
