Harris Teeter Re branding Two New Locations

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - The grand opening is months away, but that's not stopping fresh signage announcing the coming attraction of a new food store in Huntersville.

Harris Teeter is rebranding two of its suburban stores under the name of 201 Central.

A statement from the retail chain says that it will handle specialty items ranging an international food section, hard to get wines, and 35 brands of keg beer that will include local breweries.

Cullen Spivey runs the nearby Eastfield Bar and Grill.

He said, "It's gonna be helpful for us big time, because we specialize in more upscale food and real super classy beers…real craft beers that are getting popular in the state of North Carolina, especially in the Charlotte region.

The  Eastfield Bar and Grill just across the parking lot and carries some of locally made suds that are expected to show up on the store shelves.

A new store in the H.T. family may open the door for Charlotte based Four Friends Brewing.

John Fulcher is one of the partners, and hopes to get in the new store.

In recent months his product was picked up by Whole Foods which opened near South Park Mall.

"It's just starting . It's a great relationship. They want to strictly push local products."

However, this gamble by Harris Teeter isn't necessarily a safe bet when you consider in previous years chains like Hannafords, Bloom, and Winn Dixie all faded away.

Cullen Spivey just wants a successful anchor tenant to return to strip mall in Huntersville.

"It's definitely gonna good for businesses around here," he said. "Especially, when you see an empty parking lot of here, and now with business getting going its generated a new excitement around here. It should help all the small local businesses as well."

In addition to the Hunterville Store another 201 Central will open in Wesley Chapel.
