    Thanks for the info, straitlover - I am really surprised they are not honoring the price they printed in the ad. .79 is not such a great price per lb for regular carrots when Harris Teeter sells a 2 lb bag for $1.19 every day of the week.

  • straitlover1965 Sep 27, 2012

    I was at the FL at 40/42 today. They had a correction notice posted about the carrots. It said the the .79 carrots were the regular big carrots, not the baby carrots. The sign was in the produce section over the carrots, not on the front door.
