Harris Teeter is continuing its expansion in Union County with the opening of a new store Feb. 3, two weeks from today, in Indian Trail. The 48,000-square-foot store at Austin Village Shopping Center, 1351 Chestnut Lane, at Potter Road, will employ 80 people and debut after an 8 a.m. ribbon-cutting ceremony. Afterwards, it will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, with grand opening events its first three weekends.
The Indian Trail store will bring Matthews-based Harris Teeter to 195 locations chainwide, and will be the sixth store the company has opened in its current fiscal year, which began in October. Harris Teeter plans to open six more locations by the end of September.
Three of this year's new stores, including Indian Trail, are in North Carolina. The other N.C. stores will replace older locations. One, in Hendersonville, opened in December, and another, in Raleigh, is set to open Feb. 10. That store will be the chain's first two-story location. The other stores are in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, South Carolina and Tennessee.
