GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — If you like to do some late-night grocery shopping, you now have to adjust your schedule if you’re a Harris Teeter shopper.

Harris Teeter announced changes on Monday to its schedule due to the continuing pandemic. Until further notice,

  • Store hours will be 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Fresh Foods Market Service Counter revised closing time will be 8 p.m.; all amenities close at 7 p.m.
  • Butchers & Fisherman’s Market Service Counters revised closing time will be 8 p.m.

A statement from the company that obtained mentioned “difficult employment” issues as being a factor in the decision.

“We believe closing our stores earlier will allow our valued associates to: take their earned days off; efficiently process ExpressLane orders; manage labor in this difficult employment environment; ensure excellent closings to better prepare for the following day; and make certain that our stores are a clean, safe place to work and shop,” the statement said.
