Florida-based Sterilyfe USA soon will add its double-use hand sanitation and digital ad kiosks to more Harris Teeter stores.
After a “successful launch” late last year, the hand sanitation company said Thursday it will install stations into all 233 Harris Teeter stores throughout the summer and into the fall.
Harris Teeter shoppers may have noticed the kiosks in the initial 13 Charlotte stores where the stations were launched last November.
The company said it plans to move into other grocery stores, as well as into pharmacies and the “transportation arena,” by the end of the year.

Most Harris Teeter stores will have two stations in the front of each store, Sterilyfe said. They’ll contain two canisters of hand wipes, an automatic faucet that dispenses Sterilyfe’s patented alcohol-free, all-natural foam hand sanitizer and a 32-inch interactive touchscreen that offers weekly promotions.
“It’s a win/win for the customer with two forms of hand sanitation and instant savings offers that change weekly,” Sean Quinn, president of Sterilyfe USA, said in a statement. “For the advertiser, the draw of the hand sanitation and the easy-to-use design of the touchscreen translates into a 33 percent overall customer engagement.”
Harris Teeter, a subsidiary of Cincinnati-based Kroger, operates over 50 stores in the Charlotte area. In 2014, the grocery chain opened nine new stores and anticipates adding another nine in 2015 in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
