Hi all. Just doing a little research before my big move.

When I was down in the area last year, I checked out some of the grocery stores. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was disappointed. With seperate trips to Food Lion, Bi-Lo and Harris Teeter I thought one of those would have what I wanted: selection. For some reason it seems like selection is really lacking. Out of those 3 HT was the best, but even that was disappointing.

I love to cook. For me, part of the fun in cooking comes from making things from scratch. For example, I can't eat spaghetti sauce out of a jar. Just can't do it. I enjoy the process of having it all come together. So naturally I'm always looking for fresh ingredients. The selection of fresh produce in all 3 stores left a lot to be desired. Some stores not only didn't have a good selection, but they didn't even have what I was looking for.

If those were my only choices I'd be shopping at HT for sure. But is there something better? Are there other grocery stores that have an excellent produce section? When asking around the last time I was there, someone mentioned a Lowe's Foods? Recommended it BECAUSE it had a better produce section? Anyone shop there? Locations?

As far as selection, I am pretty sure you can special order anything at Harris Teeter. As far as prices, I play the price game at 4 different stores per week and usually save $50-$60 a week doing the items on sale/coupon game.
