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, 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. Harris Teeter is an equal opportunity employer.
The dedication to our shoppers dates back to 1960 when our company 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 our number one priority.
We believe the grocery store is the heart of the community, a place where people say “Hi” when you walk in, remember your favorite cut of Angus Reserve Beef, and help you make sure your children and your groceries all make it to your car safely. We want you to feel comfortable in our promise of great customer service and wide variety of top-quality products at a fair price. And do not forget – if there is something you want to tell us, please do. We value your voice!
