Most new Harris Teeter stores are approximately 53,000 square feet. It remains to be seen if Kroger would like to try out its Marketplace hypermarket stores under the Harris Teeter banner, or open Kroger Marketplace stores through its Mid-Atlantic Division.
The new Harris Teeter near Pinehurst, NC is 78,200 square feet and their largest store to date. Perhaps now with Kroger backing they are considering building more larger sized stores. But could be Wegman's is indeed looking at Charlotte as well as Raleigh for future expansion.

The proposed development in the Village of Marvin had a 120,000sq ft Harris Teeter, which could have been the first "Harris Teeter Marketplace".

Ingle's needs to decide for itself if it wants to further expand in Gaston County and expand into Mecklenburg County.

Harris Teeter has more opportunities and resources through Kroger for additional and larger stores.

A Harris Teeter Marketplace store is possible if the Harris Teeter division of Kroger would like to try out hypermarket stores.

What's the draw to Wegmanns?

I remember frequenting Wegmanns, when they came to Manalapan (NJ). Remember the upscale appearance, but not much else.

I'm fairly new to Publix, which I see as a Trader Joes, but much larger. I love their basic staple items (bread, eggs, nuts, milk), which are high quality yet reasonably priced.

Wegman's is a popular upscale supermarket based in New York known for its fresh foods and pharmacy.

Publix, a supermarket, and Trader Joe's, a specialty grocer, are in separate food retailing segments.

There aren't many MidAtlantic items that you can't get here in supermarkets. I would look at Wegmans as a source for those, just as Publix is a source of Caribbean items.

Just my opinion, but it think that Wegmans & Publix will provide different things for different audiences. Hopefully, Wegmans will sell frying peppers at a decent price as well as some other items that just aren't here. I've grown frying peppers & shared them with locals along with directions for making peppers & onions.

This is tentative, but it looks like there's a development being proposed next to the University City Boulevard Station, and the master plan calls for a 50k grocery:

Hopefully UC finally gets a Publix. Being next to the light rail station should give it plenty of foot traffic, not to mention the college students in the area.
