Harris Teeter History

Harris Teeter began in 1936 when William Thomas Harris and Willis L. Teeter opened Harris Super Market in Charlotte, North Carolina.  This store still exists, though it is currently being renovated.

In 1939, Willis and Robert Teeter opened Teeter’s Food Mart in Charleston, South Carolina.

In 1960, these two companies merged and opened their first joint venture in Kannapolis.

In 1969, Harris Teeter was purchased by the Ruddick Corporation.

In 1980, the company purchased Harris Farms dairy.  In 1984, Food World was acquired.

In the late 1980s, the company began to expand outside of the Carolinas under the leadership of Edward Dunn.  The chain was the first to test plastic shopping bags and also the first to install child belts into shopping carts.

Today, the company operates over 200 stores along the east coast and south.  The Harris Teeter corporate office is located in Matthews, NC.

I submitted a resume roughly three weeks ago after I learned of potential employment opportunity with Harris Teeter. I was informed that relocation would be necessary and I was and am fully open to moving to Virginia. I’ve been with Weis Markets for 71/2 years and am fully ready to begin a entirely new chapter both personally and professionally. My husband and I have discussed our desire to move for quite some time and we both feel that this opportunity couldn’t have come at a better time. I would love to be considered and strongly hope that I will be one of those chosen to attend Career Day in July. I thank you for you time and consideration.

To preface this email, please let me first state that I am a 90% Disabled Veteran with Traumatic Brain Injury, severe Cervical Spine damage, and PTSD sustained by a Combat tour in Iraq with the Marine Corps, and surviving a horrific IED blast on April 14, 2004 which left me this way for life. In pain 24/7, 365.

I choose NOT to use the VA hospital for my meds due to their incompetent system, and instead use BCBS for my specialized Pain Management Dr & treatments, and the many medications I must take daily.

When I first came to this Harris Teeter Pharmacy I initially spoke with the pharmacy staff there about my medical issues and inquired if they would be able to support me with the meds I required. From that first day, I have been increasingly impressed by this staff and truly wish to submit this email on their behalf so they can hopefully be thanked publicly for their dedication and fantastic customer service!

I am not sure where this msg eventually ends up, but PLEASE see that Honorine, Laura, and Bella are all formally recognized for their incredibly exceptional performance as your Pender Campus Pharmacy Staff! They always call me by name, are always friendly, outgoing, and cheerful even when I have had the most painful day. Their customer service goes far and beyond anything I have ever encountered by a pharmacy and since there is primarily only 3 of them here, it is truly amazing how much work they perform! They have educated me on medications, advised me about interactions, and asked about how I have been feeling on a current basis. This is NOT a robotic and assembly line pharmacy like you find at big name stores or other 3 letter ones which are found everywhere! This is by far the best pharmacy I have yet to use and will be remaining with them for as long as the building there is standing!

Please place a copy of this commendatory letter in each of their personnel folders should it be of assistance during annual evaluations or potential promotion / pay raise reviews. I want this professional staff to know how well they are appreciated by this Disabled Veteran (and of course my Black Lab Service Dog Russell too!)

Thank you for taking the time to read this and accept this praise for your employees!
Most Respectfully,

We are a non-profit 501c3 that provides food and anti depression field trips to seniors, at risk adults and teens and unemployed families. Harris Teeter has supported us once every 4 years since 2010. We recently obtained a $40.00 donation from the Manassas,VA location and $20.00 from the Galveston location in Woodbridge,VA. While purchasing food and Harris Teeter bags from the Woodbridge,VA location at 2:00am, the manager that night/morning began making sarcastic statements and inquiries as to why I was purchasing certain items. He then attempted to overcharge me by $30.00 and took the certificates from me. The final insult was his statement that he did not believe I shopped there often because I only had 12 points from my card purchases. I ended up being insulted and cheated out of $30.00 In order to cover his steps, he complained to the manager the next day that I had too many certificates. I only submit request every 4 years for a field trip and fundraiser. I have also posted my experience on Yelp. After I contacted Robin (The Manager), she then started implying that I was suspect for getting a donation from two locations. I had no idea it made a difference. I plan to file a complaint with the BBB. I wanted this to be on record. The ironic thing is, we were taking seniors and youth to see a Washington Nationals baseball game. Harris Teeter is sponsor for the Nats. We purchased recyclable bags with Harris Teeter’s name on it and they were visable to fans and TV. Our group was diverse and all races. I was African American, purchasing at 2:00am for the trip. I had to put items back that were more than covered by the amount I had because the manager did not think they were valid non-profit purchases in his PERSONAL opinion. HE had no idea what we were planning.

I shop very regularly at the Burlington store, where I have ALWAYS received EXCELLENT customer service. I’m disappointed that the stock is always poor during super doubles, but hoping that will change. My reason for commenting is poor choice by corporate to have the store dona stock shift during super doubles. It is not only very difficult to shop with this going on, but the people working are being constantly interrupted, asked to move, or even being run into. I feel bad for interfering with someone’s job. HOWEVER, though this is a prime example of “piss poor planning”, as always, my store is showing grace under pressure, and EVERYONE THERE has put on a smile, offered a kind greeting, and asked if they could help. These people deserve to be commended for what they’re doing, ESPECIALLY when made to do it THIS WEEK.


Eveline March 30, 2015 at 4:51 pm

am very sorry for your store in Dc specially the one in Noma that girl in sub name Christal ,she is very snappy I really don’t know about other customers but she actually put too much meat and is not everybody that love to eat lot of meat Harris teeter need to teach or retrain her employe on sub station.

We lived in Charlotte for 12 years and shopped at Harris Teeter a majority of the time and got used to certain standards of the store — clean, decent produce, good meat selction and ALWAYS having product available especially the evic specials. We moved to Northern VA in October 2013 and were happy to see Harris Teeter was also in our new locations, however, they apparently have a whole different standard of keeping stores stocked. The produce more than once is sparse and has been picked through by 6 p.m and not restocked for folks that come in a little later in the evening. I’ve been disappointed in fruit and vegetable selections more than once. AND, multiple times we’ve gone in on the weekend for the eVic specials only to see the shelves empty where the product should be. Very disappointing since we never had this happen in Charlotte.
We were trying to shop at the Harris Teeter at Stone Ridge – 238; 42015 Village Center Plaza #110, Aldie, VA
We’ve moved our business to Giant for now. We might try Harris Teeter again someday.

Dear Harris Teeter folks,
I have been a lifetime Harris Teeter shopper. Love, love the store atmosphere and it’s employees here in Wilson, NC are exceptional. When my 3 year old granddaughter is asked about HT, she says “Mimi, it’s not a grocery store, It’s Harris Teeter”. I do have a complaint though. I know you are trying to be a supporter of local farmers and invest in the local economy, so I am surprised and disturbed to see the fresh blueberries (more times than not) coming from New Jersey. I am a NC citizen choosing to invest my money in your store, I certainly would expect you to invest your money in the NC economy. The Carolina Blueberry Association is located in Garland, NC just 1 1/2 hours from where I live. The farmers who are members there grow the very best blueberry ever. No comparison to the New Jersey folks. These are NC men and women who are run small businesses who work very hard and produce an excellent product. I’ve shopped at HT and paid more many times because I felt you had a better quality. This is usually always the case. How do I know so much about blueberry quality. My sister and her husband (Nancy and Tommy Smith) have farmed blueberries for over 30 years in Garland and I frequently visit. There are many other blueberry farmers in that area also. The website for the association is carolinablueberry.com. Please don’t overlook these valuable resources we have right here in our great state.
Thank you for taking the time to read this rather lengthy email.

I would like to know why Harris Teeter charges a per piece price for red, yellow and green peppers. Most stores charge per lb. Also why is Oikas Yogurt 2 for 3.00 when most other stores charge 1.19 or 5 for !.00. Looking forward to hearing from you.


Brendan June 1, 2015 at 10:55 am

Are you serious?


Lalitha Martyres April 26, 2014 at 7:14 pm

I received very poor service at the Harris Teeter in Fulton when I tried to use your Western Union service on April 12. morning .The woman in charge had us wait a long time and after that, delayed us further by attending to other matters in the middle of our transaction .
Today, when I brought this incident to the attention of the manager ,Stephen Mariner, he justified the poor service by saying they gave priority to “their customers” first.
If you are unable to handle Western Union services,you should stop .
We have received excellent service in the past ,not only at your store in Fulton but in the Rockville branch as well.However,we have now decided to stop shopping and using Western Union services at your stores.

Very angry with the Harris Teeter next to my home. I spotted a package of beef with a substantial hole in the wrapping. The meat beneath it was already dried out and had turned hard–AKA, it had gone bad in that spot. I took it to the person working in the meat department, and pointed it out. He brought it back out to the shelf moments later. Curious, I looked at the package–ALL HE HAD DONE WAS COVER IT UP. The spoiled meat was STILL inside. I took it to the front and gave it to the manager in front of a cashier. Guess what the cashier said? “Oh, they’re probably super busy and they’re just supposed to cover it again instead of taking the meat out and reweighing it. It’s the holidays, ma’am. They don’t have time to do all that.” I explained that even though it’s the holidays, I wouldn’t want anyone to get sick off of spoiled meat. His reaction: “I doubt anyone would get sick off of that.” Okay, dude. Glad you care. How much bad meat have you sold to people?? I’ve gotten sick off of meat bought from there before. This disturbs me and disgusts me.

We as retailers always want our customers to leave with more than they planned on purchasing. One opportunity I see every grocery missing is having stacks of hand baskets around the store for shoppers to pick up. Stand in a store and watch a customer without a basket and watch how she shops. Once her hands are full she more than likely will be done shopping, if she has the availability to put her items in something she probably pick up additional items.

I love shopping in your store on Savannah Highway in Charleston but…when my hands are full i’m done. Something tells me I am not the only one and the additional sales would certainly off set the expense of the additional hand baskets. Come on Harris Teeter…increase those sales!


Christine November 1, 2013 at 2:37 pm

I couldn’t agree with you more, Lisa. I just had my first visit to the new market last week, having arrived to entertain 10 guests for an annual weekend at our home. I left empty handed and drove into Charleston at the last minute.
This is 2 thumbs down for me. The fresh breads aren’t crusty. The bakery looked worse than any big bulk store goods and the prepared foods were as unappetizing as anything I’ve ever seen in a grocery store. I had a platter of wraps prepared as a last resort to serve my guests for lunch, and they were all dried out and falling apart on the tray.
I am so disappointed at the direction that the village is going in. I can only imagine that it will get much worse when the new hotel opens. UGH….


Lisa October 19, 2013 at 8:17 pm

I am a resident of Kiawah Island where Harris Teeter just opened a store called Village Mkt, previously a Newton Farms> the Grocery, dairy dept and frozen foods are a vast improvement BUT>>>> you guys totally missed the mark on the prepared foods and bakery> Seriously we expect much higher standards with a superior quality of food since that is what we always received from Newton Farms…where is the shrimp salad ???
edible chicken salad??? quality salad bar with fresh foods and why is all you sell in the bakery are really poor quality cakes??
Maybe the higher ups at Harris Tetter should take a field trip to Whole Foods, Caviar & Bananas and Earth Fare to taste and see what the residents expect if you want us to shop and promote your store….otherwise back to driving to Charleston for quality and healthy options. It will be worth the ride. oh and don’t you think the fish should be
local….you are at the ocean


Rob Andrews June 25, 2013 at 7:59 pm

I am a corporate retiree who is very impressed with the HARRISTEETER willingness to invest in eastern North Carolina. What a pleasure it is to see stores of your quality in smaller communities around N.C.
It is even better to enjoy eating of the “fresh supply” of foods and the supply of different labels I have to choose from stock so to speck, at my backdoor!
Please keep-up the good-work you are now doing.


Peter Wittenberg April 25, 2013 at 10:56 am

I have always been a fan of Harris Teeter and I was worry that they left Gastonia. I always assumed that HT was a good corporate citizen. My impression has changed. The intention of building a HT store as an achor store in a residential neighborhood by an unscrupulous developmer is beyond any comprehension. There are other desirable commericial areas to build a new HT without rezoning a residential neighborhood. I am asking you o withdraw from this development. I would like to have a HT in Gastonia, but not in a residential neighborhood. This area is zoned residential and to have an unscrupulous developer and a real estate agent, Mr. Bridgeman, who apparently has similar mentality as the developer to stick it to the neighborhood, as long as they can make some money from the property without any concern about the consequences. I believe you would be surprised if you would contact the citizens that live in this neighborhood and ask for their opinion.

Good evening I would like to know if there are any plans in the near future for the Harris teeter’s Store in Laurinburg, N.C. to have a Super Triple Coupons Event up to $1.00 and also if there are plans for the same store to have Super double every Wednesday as some of the Charlotte N.C. stores?

RE: Property Garner North Carolina
Intersection of I-40 and Highway 42

We are not realtors. My wife and I have owned this property since 1978. We rearranged in 1992, but we have held this property of many, many years.

We have and are offering acreage directly across from Wal-mart, with a double turning lane into our property. We have two corner lots with from 1 to 7 acres for one lot and 1 to 13 acres on the other lot. It is zoned commercial with special interstate allowances (IHI-SUD)(this may have something to do with alcohol sales). Sewage pipes are already on the property at the front and the back. Electric and county water are also there.

The property is in the Rivers Oaks Commercial Park. Many houses and fine businesses are already located within a few 1000 feet of this property. These will be your neighbors. Some of the establishments already in this area include.

Draft House State Employees Credit Union Game Stop
Advanced Auto Pizza Inn Wood Forest National Bank
CVS China King Lowe’s Home Improvement
Waffle House Ruby Tuesday Value Place Inn
Dominos Papa Subs Comfort Inn
KFC Smithfield Chicken and BBQ Super 8
Marathon Oil BBT Holiday Inn Express
Subway Four Oaks Bank Dunkin Donuts
Bo Jangles University Lights Redbox
Sleep Inn Cracker Barrel Fantastic Sams
Dairy Queen Applebee’s Wal-Mart
Exxon RE Max Murphy Gas
McDonalds Golden Corral Shoe Show
Burger King Babcock Furniture Smart Style hair salon
Great Clips Andy’s WalGreens
Food Lion Car Quest

The county is very supportive of adding good businesses; such as you, on this space. The turn off into the property is double and has the light in place. I can send a picture showing , two lanes that are turning into your future site.

A couple of plans have been proposed and approved by the county for development of the property. One again, I can send you this information also.

If you are interested in locating in one of the strongest sites in the rapidly growing county of Johnston County, North Carolina, please feel free to return this email or call Don West at 336-263-3337.

I look forward to helping you be successful in your business ventures.
