Charlotte, N.C. (PRWEB) July 27, 2012
Harris Teeter is opening its newest location in Charlotte, N.C. on Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2012. The company is celebrating its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony as well as additional weekend activities to give customers the opportunity to meet their Davis Lake Harris Teeter management team and experience the HT Difference.
Harris Teeter acquired its Davis Lake location through the company’s purchase and sale agreement with Lowe’s Food Stores, Inc. earlier in the year. The location was temporarily closed in June for remodeling, stocking and training of employees and is reopening under the Harris Teeter banner on Aug. 8 at 8 a.m.
Harris Teeter was established in 1960 when two North Carolina grocers merged operations. What once was a 15-store chain with locations throughout 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 Charlotte, N.C., Harris Teeter strives to offer customers an excellent shopping experience on every visit. An excellent shopping experience includes clean and modern stores, attentive customer service, high-quality perishables as well as variety and selection at competitive prices.
Harris Teeter’s commitment to its customers also extends to its approach to sustainability. Harris Teeter is introducing various green practices and programs into its Davis Lake Harris Teeter. The store features a white reflective energy efficient roof, LED lighting on frozen food and dairy case doors, low-flow faucets, motion detection lighting, energy management systems and heat reclamation systems. All of these features serve to minimize the store’s carbon footprint to benefit future generations; Harris Teeter also encourages its shoppers to take little green steps to promote a sustainable future, including using reusable bags and recycling plastic and paper in the recycling bins in front of the store.
