Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Inc. Key Developments

Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Inc. Opens New Store in Raleigh, North Carolina

Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Inc. has announced the opening of a new store in Raleigh, North Carolina. In each of its stores, Harris Teeter strives to offer customers an excellent shopping experience, which begins with customer service and features high-quality perishables, variety and selection.

Harris Teeter to Close Four Locations

Harris Teeter announced plans to close four locations and convert three of those to Kroger stores. The move comes about one year after The Kroger Co. acquired Harris Teeter for $2.5 billion. Kroger retained the Harris Teeter brand in the merger. Both the Kroger Nashville division and Harris Teeter are wholly-owned subsidiaries of Ohio-based The Kroger Co. Now, Harris Teeter plans to close stores in Hillsboro Village, in Franklin and in Brentwood on or around June 15, leaving a temporarily hole in the Nashville area grocery market. Those locations will be converted to Kroger stores over the course of the next year. The Hillsboro Village store is slated to reopen in January 2016, the Franklin store will reopen before Thanksgiving and the Brentwood store will reopen in spring 2016 after a major remodel. The existing Kroger store a half-mile away from the Brentwood Harris Teeter will close when the remodeled Harris Teeter reopens as a Kroger.

Harris Teeter to Close Nashville Stores

Harris Teeter is preparing to permanently close one of its Nashville stores. The store's closure will leave a 58,373-square-foot hole at the Belle Meade Town Center.
