    Walmart is across the road, there is no Publix, you have the wrong store, that is Stonecreek you are talking about.

    HT is closing that location in large measure because of the Publix across the road. Publix has unique features as well as a competitive environment/employees that are unlike other HT competitors in the area.

    Wow! Like carolina2 said that may not be a good idea. I have attended the same church since I was a child in the Green Level area and it is exploding with growth now. And for selfish reasons this is my stop when I leave church.

    And Pender is the same guy he was in school. A good person with a kind heart.

    My daughter goes to that store practically every day, been shopping there since it opened She knows everyone that works there so I know she is going to be devastated.

    I have been shopping there since Dec 1997 or the opening of the store and the Harris Teeter chain since 1986. With Apex And Cary both having a growth explosion out on Green Level Rd in Wake County and then Chatham it is not bright to close this store but to wait for these houses unless another chain is planning to move in already. I am just smh 🤦‍♂️ at this decision.

    This was my go-to store when I first moved here and lived on Rt 55. Sorry to see it go. Love Harris Teeter.

    Pender and David are like family. We moved locally two years ago and I do hope they transfer to the Harris Teeter nearby. They are wonderful!

    heazer - that is so sweet of you to give props to your favorite HT employees! I hope they can move to another store close to you. I'm sure they would love it if you shared that compliment about Pender and David on the Harris Teeter Facebook page as well. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the closing.

    Such a shame! I never understood why HT decided to build a newer store a mile down High House instead of putting some upgrades into this store.

    I hope they take good care of Pender and David. Those two men have been there longer than I've shopped at that store....and I've shopped there 17 years. Pender and David are the definition of what always made HT the best place to shop!
