Kroger's North Carolina stores are in the Mid-Atlantic Division. The distribution center for the Mid-Atlantic Division stores is at 3800 Garman Road, Salem, Virginia 24153-8822.

In regards to distribution centers, Harris Teeter should be in the process of constructing and opening a distribution center in Caroline County, Virginia. The new distribution center should support stores in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia.

Harris Teeter has a distribution center in Greensboro that supports stores in Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia. The new Caroline County, Virginia, distribution center will free up space in the Greensboro distribution center to support existing and future stores in North Carolina.

They chose to invest in other areas where they saw the opportunity for a greater return on investment.
Years ago they used to have Kroger in Charlotte but they were traded to BI-LO. Now that Kroger owns Harris Teeter, they seem to be pushing that popular HT brand in their hometown market, as well as most other areas of NC. Kroger must perform better in the Triangle, but they also have Harris Teeter as an upscale option.
