In 1936, W.T. Harris opened the first Harris Food Store in Charlotte, NC. The store was founded on three principles: high-quality products, clean stores and superior customer service. Just a few years later, Willis L. Teeter and his brother, Paul, opened their first Teeter’s Food Mart in Mooresville, NC. On February 1, 1960, Harris Super Markets and Teeter’s Food Marts officially merged to form Harris Teeter Super Markets, Inc. There were already 15 stores in operation. The first “Harris Teeter” store to open under the new banner was in Kannapolis, NC.
Today, Harris Teeter operates over 220 stores in the eight-state area of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland and Delaware. We also have stores in the District of Columbia.
In addition to our retail stores, we operate grocery, frozen food, and perishable distribution centers in Greensboro and Indian Trail, NC, as well as the Hunter Farms milk and ice cream facility in High Point, NC.
We are headquartered in Matthews, NC and currently have approximately 26,000 employees. Harris Teeter is committed to providing an enjoyable, diverse workplace with growth opportunities for all who strive to succeed. We will provide industry leading employee benefits and a safe, stable work environment for our staff. We know we can only be as successful as our team – less
