The dedication to their shoppers dates back to 1960 when Harris Teeter was formed through the merger of two regional grocery stores committed to customer service. Almost 50 years and over a hundred of store openings later, customer service remains their number one priority.
Harris Teeter, Inc. (Harris Teeter), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Harris Teeter Supermarkets, Inc., was co-founded in 1960 by North Carolina grocers W.T. Harris and Willis Teeter. Harris Teeter now operates over 200 stores in eight states and the District of Columbia.
