Ribbon Cutting to Take Place Aug. 22

Harris Teeter is opening its newest store in Matthews on Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2012. The company is celebrating its grand opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony as well as additional weekend activities to give neighbors the opportunity to meet their Idlewild Market Harris Teeter management team and experience the HT Difference.

Harris Teeter acquired its new Idlewild Market 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. The store is reopening under the Harris Teeter banner on Aug. 22 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 Matthews, 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.
