Dr Russ Blog - Healthy Product Not Available? Just Ask!
Healthy Product Not Available? Just Ask!
Created on 4/18/2014

M sent in a very good question - he asked if more low sugar and low fat products could be carried at his store.

We are all paying greater attention to healthy, at least healthier, food options and for good reasons - a nutritious dietary program is the cornerstone of a program for optimal health and wellbeing.

After all, good food not only tastes good but can also prevent and, in some instances, help treat certain ailments.

I took M's question up the ladder and received a great answer - all you need to do is ask.

Harris Teeter is constantly looking to create space for healthier food options as they gain in popularity. Demand, however, dictates how much shelf space these products get, or if they are carried at all.

The best way to increase demand?

Let your store know you would like the product(s) to be carried so you can purchase it more easily.

Go to the Customer Relations desk, provide them with information about the product, and request that it be made available in the store.

Responding to customer requests is a very high priority at Harris Teeter.

And a request to carry a healthy food option not presently in your Harris Teeter is likely to be acted upon quickly.

Great question, M - thank you!

Be well.
Dr. Russ
