    Faye, you have the eggs listed above in your link. I was thinking the same thing and ran to the online to check.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Aug 30, 2012

    The Davidson eggs are not still on sale at HT, lilybaby.

    You can actually check product prices online at Harris Teeter by going to HarrisTeeter.com and clicking on Online Shopping. You then enter your store and you can search for specific items to see the price. Hope that helps! :-)
