One of Harris Teeter’s two 201central stores is closing, the grocery chain announced Wednesday.
The beer and wine store’s Huntersville location, located at 13108 Eastfield Road, is closing in February, according to a release.
The store is giving patrons a discount on alcohol before it closes, however. All beer and wine is 30 percent off until Feb. 3, Harris Teeter announced. Other general merchandise is half off.
Employees at the store were notified about the decision earlier this week, spokeswoman Danna Robinson said.
Robinson didn’t detail why the store was closing, only noting that “Harris Teeter made a strategic decision to close this location only after careful consideration.”
Harris Teeter’s other 201central store will not be impacted, Robinson confirmed. That store is located in Wesley Chapel. Both locations opened in 2012.
In addition to beer and wine, 201central has a cafe, wine tasting, and specialty foods, among other features.
