This Harris Teeter has something unique I've never seen in any other:

At the back of the store there is an animatronic display on top of the dairy section along the back wall of the store. It's dairy products with eyes and moving mouths (a milk carton, some yogurt, etc.), staged as a band called the Hunter Farms Cartoneers. There's a light switch mounted to the side of one of the coolers nearby, and if you flip it a couple times, the display will light up and they will sing a short, dairy-related song.

We always had a lot of fun flipping the switch and running. It was still there a few months back, last I checked.

Was Harris Teeter #244 originally a Kroger supermarket?

This store was originally a Kroger Greenhouse. It was one of the stores that were "swapped" for HT's Roanoke stores.

Default Harris Teeter #244, Westridge Square, 3357 Battleground Avenue, Greensboro, North Carolina 27410-2401

Why is Harris Teeter #244 closing?

First, there are four stores nearby:
  • Harris Teeter #280, The Shoppes at Battleground Oaks, 4010 Battleground Avenue, Greensboro, North Carolina 27410-9296
  • Harris Teeter #306, The Shops at Friendly Center, 3330 West Friendly Avenue, Greensboro, North Carolina 27410-4808
  • Harris Teeter #342, Garden Creek Center, 1605 New Garden Road, Greensboro, North Carolina 27410-2001
  • Harris Teeter #347, Lawndale Crossing, 2639 Lawndale Drive, Greensboro, North Carolina 27408-4802
Second, the store, as Kroger and as Harris Teeter #244, is 32 years old. The lease is up and/or the expenses of improving the store outweigh keeping it open.

Third, supermarket Publix has been in speculation to open a store at Brassfield Shopping Center.

I'm sure that isn't going to happen.

If Kroger opened new stores in North Carolina, those stores would be Kroger Marketplace hypermarkets. I do not know of Kroger's Mid-Atlantic Division's plans to open Kroger Marketplace stores in North Carolina. With Harris Teeter a division of Kroger, I could see additional Harris Teeter stores opening.
