Have you looked in any of the big Ingles?

Leave early & make a pit stop at the Kings Mountain Ingles. You won't find everything that you want, but you'll find some of it.

Awesome!!! Which Harris Tetter has the Ginger Beer??? And I know the laws in NC allows purchase of non alholic beer in NC is legal to minors. But I figured out some walmarts here dont understand it so I have to wait a week for them to find out they were wrong and let me buy it lol. No gingerbeer but NA beer in the store.
As long as harris tetter dont wanna ID me.

I love the ginger beers so much!



Here are my plans for tommrow. Leaving here at 8:10am I should be there by atleast 9:30. At 11 ish I wanted to eat at Big Ben Pub. So I have between 9:30 til 11 for shopping. Cause I have to be back in my County by 2:40.

But I want to buy some british goods to bring back with me. I hate ordering online its EXPENSIVE

Il be around here 2000 South Blvd, Charlotte, NC

so if around there would be even better but can travel.

I've seen ginger beers at the Kings Mountain Ingles. I don't know if they have it now. What other items are you looking for? If Ingles has the items it will probably be much cheaper than Harris Teeter.

I reckon you might be able to find 90% your list at World Market - there's one at 9557 South Boulevard Charlotte, NC 28273, but I'd still take I-77 from Big Ben's to get there.

I'm not sure which Harris Teeters have those British food sections - I actually emailed them a while back asking this, but never got a response.

Big Ben's is just okay, IMO......and pack a cooler, so that your chocolates don't melt!

Thankfully ginger beer is a soda.

The Harris Teeter or Rea road & at the Aboretum both have it, World market may have it as well, I would make that the first stop.

If you go to the south African store as well that is near another world market, so usually if I go to one I go to the other.

The other think I have found is several places sell the ginger beer with hispanic or jamican foods. Goya make a ginger beer, cannot remember the jamacian name.
