Harris Teeter 17 In September, Harris Teeter renovated two locations into new concept stores called 201central, which will feature an extensive variety of wine, beer, specialty foods and other general merchandise items. 201central is branded in reference to one of the original Harris Food Stores, Store #201, on Central Avenue in Charlotte, NC. Store #201 was not only the first full self-service supermarket in Charlotte, but it was also the first airconditioned grocery store and was the first to stay open until 9 p.m. on Friday nights. The company continues to follow in the innovative footsteps of its founders today, and 201central allows the company to redefine its approach to grocery, offering more specialty services for its customers, including instore wine consultants, event coordination and catering, as well as party rentals and educational classes focused on wine, beer and food pairings. Customers will also have the opportunity to purchase wine and bar accessories, party goods, appliances, kitchen gadgets and seasonal products.
