Harris Teeter is proud to welcome its brand new Purcellville Gateway Harris Teeter on June 5, 2012 and is celebrating the grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony and weekend activities to introduce community members to the HT Difference.

Harris Teeter was established in 1960 when two North Carolina grocers merged operations. What was once a 15-store chain with locations in North Carolina is now a regional grocer with over 200 locations in eight states and Washington, D.C. In each of its locations, including its newest store in Purcellville, Va., Harris Teeter strives to offer customers an excellent shopping experience on every visit. An excellent shopping experience starts in the store with customer service, high-quality perishables along with variety and selection. To celebrate the grand opening of the company’s 209th store, therefore, Store Director Nate Durbin will cut the ribbon and invite shoppers inside to meet the management staff and shop the brand new facility.

The Purcellville Gateway Harris Teeter will feature various sustainable, energy-efficient designs and practices. Shoppers will notice motion detection lighting, LED lighting in cases, as well as doors on medium temperature cases in both the Farmers Market and Butchers Market and water-saving devices on all hand sinks.

The new Harris Teeter will also feature a salad bar, Asian bar and cheese kiosk as well as a pharmacy.
