Harris Teeter shoppers get free groceries after cash register crash
Posted March 6, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — When cash registers at the Cameron Village Harris Teeter failed Friday afternoon, everyone in line got their grocery order for free.
A manager said his team tried for about 15 minutes to reboot the system that runs their checkout lines, but after that time felt it was unfair to ask people to wait any longer.
He let anyone already in line leave with their carts full.
The manager said he did not have any estimate of how many customers got their groceries for free or the total value of the gesture.
