Opening in 8 days according to the sign on the window! I don't know if it is because it is tucked at the back of the shopping center & I haven't paid much attention to the goings-on, or what, but it sure seems like that happened fast! Meanwhile, the poor Dunkin Donuts sits, still not open, can't figure out why...

I feel like I've been robbed every time I shop at Harris Teeter. I go to the one at Holly Springs & Sunset now, but this new is a good location for me too. I love how nice and clean and new the stores are. But every time I leave I'm like why did I go there?

That's exciting it will be open soon. I wonder how that's going to affect the traffic in the area.

I feel bad for the people in the connected neighborhood (Stonebridge) that I will be cutting through every time I go to (from, actually) the HT.

Looking forward to having it so close, but yes, you do need to learn what they have good prices on and what you should buy elsewhere.

Their subs are an awesome deal.

Harris Teeter is a great store for shopping with coupons. Right now they have triple coupons up to .99. So if you have a coupon for .75, it's really worth 2.25! When buying items already on sale, one can get many items for free! I shopped there twice over the weekend for basics like cereal, bread, rice, etc.

Trip 1:
Total saved (sale & coupons) 40.15
Total out of pocket 33.81

Trip 2
Total saved (sale & coupons) 39.80
Total out of pocket 33.85

Harris Teeter will also have super doubles every 6 weeks or so. This is doubling coupons up to 1.98. This means your coupon that is 1.75 is worth 3.50. Again, buying items already on sale and using coupons means lots of stuff in your cart is free.

I shop for fruits, veggies, etc. at Lowe's or Trader Joe's. Looking forward to Bloom opening up so I can try their produce department.

I heart coupons!!

That Dunkin must have run into financial problems or something because the store looks pretty complete from the outside and most of the furnishings are inside. I can't believe the Teeter will be open so soon. And I know I'll definitely be using the main entrance of Stonebridge as my cut through to get out of there so I can go left on Kildaire.

Harris Teeter isn't my favorite and I hope the fact that it is on MY side of the traffic signal at Ten Ten and Kildaire Farm doesn't make me so lazy that I shop there most of the time instead of going across the intersection to Lowe's. I really prefer Lowe's. HT does seem to have more convenience foods, though, and I like their trash bags I'll probably go to both, then if the Bloom ever opens 10 years from now I'll go there too &, occasionally, Fresh Market & Trader Joe's. I was just amazed they are opening so soon!

The actual store has been built for about a month, but it's looked empty until last week.
The other Holly Springs Harris Teeter store is opening tomorrow
(on the corner of 55bypass and avent ferry).

I second that Dunkin' Donuts.
They were supposed to be done the week of June 22, but there must be some major issues...

I agree with assessment that Dunks' must have run into some financial issues. I drive by there all the time and never even notice any work trucks parked there anymore. I haven't driven up close to see if there are any signs. Other reasons could have to do with permits or a change in ownership? Strange indeed. That place will be a gold mine so I'm sure they could start turning a profit fairly quickly.

By the way..what is up with that Bloom construction on Holly Springs Road? That looks more than "stalled"
