Yup, RC Cola and a moonpie is classic southern.

Haha, RC Cola! You know what: I saw that, along with Diet Rite, at the Huntersville store! I can't remember the last time I had a moonpie though!

There is several Harris Teeters have salad bars I know in the huntersville the one at Northcross has one with cheese bar, olive, bar and bread station.

Also the one near blythe landing has a salad bar and very nice store layout. They also do groceries online pickups at this store.
Only thing I do not care about this store is the layout is in reverse Im use to shopping right to left not left to right.

The only thing I could never find in HT or any other store in NC is diet cream soda.

Harris Teeter's prices are high. I went yesterday to get some paper towel. The store brand was $1.59 EACH. A 3 pak at Wal-mart and Target (each roll the sime size as HT's) is the same price as HT's single roll. I went to Aldi's and got two same size rolls for under $1.

I agree with the fact that the prices at the local grocery stores here are high. I paid $9.00 for a (small) bunch of grapes once. I thought they made an error.
But, I have found that the HT in Morrocroft has alot of everything. I also like Earthfare in Ballantyne and FreshMarket in Strawberry Hill. I have found that sometimes they don't have what I want, but they will order it for you (certain syrups, tomatoes, etc)
I think with HT we are paying for the "service" of someone always bagging your groceries and walking you to the car, or their drive-up service. I never experienced this in New England! *LOL* Although, I must say, I'd rather pay less for my groceries and walk myself to the car!

I love wegmans too!! being from upstate NY I hate the thought of moving to a place that doesn't have it. I am currently living in Northern VA and they just got 2 here.

BUT.... I heard a rumor that they will be moving further south, including going into the Charlotte area! How great would that be. I can't verify it...just a rumor at this point.

We shopped at the Super Walmart and we saved a ton, the wagon was full and it was like 130.00 I use HT and Lowes for fill ins. I also noticed that not all HT carry the same thing, that was interesting.
