What are the largest supermarket chains in the United States? The list is very, very long, and Harris Teeter is included in it. It is a famous line of grocery supermarkets with over 80 years of history. It all started from two different stores. The first, owned by W. T. Harris was opened in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 1939. His shop was not so big, but it had two essential features that highlighted it from the others. Firstly, Harris’s shop was the first outlet with an air-conditioning system in the county. And secondly, it was open until 9 p.m. on Friday evenings. At the same time, the other American businessman, Willis L. Teeter opened his supermarket in another North Carolina town, Mooresville.

Almost twenty years after the passes of W. T. Harris and Willis L. Teeter crossed. By 1958, both of them developed their stores into small chains. And then they decided to join their forces. In two years, they united their businesses and created a Harris Teeter Supermarket chain with 15 shops combined. Later they established the first new shop in Kannapolis, and in three years, their chain grew to 25 stores.
