Harris Teeter Taking Over Greenville Kroger Location

Harris Teeter says it will add another location in Greenville, taking over the existing Kroger on Evans Street.

Jennifer Thompson, communications director for Harris Teeter, says on December 19th they will open a 5,000 square foot facility within the existing store which will house a pharmacy and essential shopping items.

Thompson says they will then remodel the rest of the site and in the fall of 2011 open a new 53,000 square foot store.

This will be Harris Teeter's 3rd location in Greenville and Thompson says the other two locations will remain open.

The change will apparently mean Kroger exiting Eastern Carolina, with the closest location being in Raleigh. Calls to Kroger were not immediately returned.

    is Harris Teeter coming back to Myrtle Beach? A lot of us wish you never left. Take over some of the Piggly Wiggly's......like Litchfield and Carolina Forest

    All this arguing about grocery stores? It is a grocery store -Hello. If this is all you have to be concerned about -you have a pretty good life. The stores already here must be doing something right - I really do not see that many mal-nourished people in Greenville and the surrounding area. How about for once folks just read a story - and keep their opinion to themselves.

    The Fresh Market Welcomes all customers to shop our store in Greenville. We offer very good customer service, a great variety of specialty grocery items and with the Harris Teeter's buy out of Lowes Food and Kroger location customers should give us a try. Thank You TFM Employee

    Won't matter to me. I will continue to shop at Aldi. They have great prices, great award winning imported foods amd gifts, and cannot be beat. Kroger, HT and Lowe's are just snooty expensive stores.

    If Kroger does have to leave , why couldn't we get a grocery store that is new to the area. It would offer more diversity to shoppers.

    Neo, I'm so sorry you don't seem capable of grasping the concept of humor. Not much of the rest of that made any sense as a result. You also illustrated the point I was making, while trying to invalidate it. Money doesn't change the fact that people have varied personalities. It really does not matter. At some point here the topic was a market.. last time I checked.

    "Audra", I interact with wealthy people numerous times each day. The only ones who say "yum yum", are the airheaded wives of successful men, those who inherited from someone with much more common sense and one guy who started out with a one chair hair salon and has built a small chain over the years. Actually I think he says "yummy" instead of "yum yum" but it's the same principle. People in SoCal may talk like that anyway or the smog could have gotten to you, who knows. Thurston Howell was a simpleton's conception of a millionaire, just a character on TV and WOULD HAVE used the term "yum yum". Audra, he wasn't real, he was an actor. He was not reality and it seems you are an infrequent visitor as well.

    @ Grumpy: I am glad I left Greenville, not b/c of the people (I love everyone there) but because there was nothing for me. I am really pleased with where Greenville is going and getting more upscale stores like HT only makes Greenville look better to outsiders. Think about it, if they see the establishment of store like HT and perhaps Whole Foods, Nordstrom, Trader Joe's, Maceys, and other higher end stores, that will attract more business, bringing more money, a larger tax basis, and eventually a better city. I hope people see this positive move and stop being content with how things are (the good ole days). Everyone else is moving forward, why not follow and accept that its the way its going to be.

    Baker.. I so have to address this. I have no idea if that person is wealthy or not, but the way they speak is no indication whatsoever. I have worked for 5 different extremely wealthy men over the course of my life (along with other less fortunate ones), & been friends with a couple of others, and even dated one that was... & I can tell you that their personalities are as varied as anyone else in the country. Some were reserved, aloof, & unapproachable. Others were goofy, fun, and wild. Still others were very very ordinary. Nothing about having money - no matter how it was obtained - dictates their level of literacy, type of personality, or choice of speech patterns. You must be thinking of Thurston Howell the 3rd. That's not reality.

    Well I will be shopping at lowes foods from now on. It is a nice store and cheaper than harris teeter, and it is right across the street.
