The Harris Teeter Express at Providence and Queens roads will close June 4, as the company works to complete a two-story replacement store at the site.
The new, 42,000-square-foot store is set to reopen in November, Harris Teeter spokeswoman Catherine Reuhl said. Harris Teeter announced the new store project in Feb. 2011.
Building permits show Harris Teeter is spending more than $9 million on the new store. The new building will include a second-story mezzanine and more parking than the current store, which was an A&P grocery store when it was built in 1938.
It will be Matthews-based Harris Teeter's second major store replacement in Charlotte. The Harris Teeter on Central Avenue is set to reopen May 29. At that location, Harris Teeter replaced a smaller, older store with a new, larger Art Deco-style building.
The Providence Road store project also includes road improvements designed to help drivers navigate one of the city's most vexing intersections, the Queens-Queens-Providence-Providence vortex that is Charlotte's Bermuda Triangle. You can see details about the roadwork here.
