Harris Teeter is returning to Gastonia Sept. 27.
The Matthews-based grocer hasn’t had a store in Gastonia since 2012, the year it pulled out to focus on Charlotte and other nearby markets. The newly constructed, 53,000 square-foot Gastonia store is at 3350 Robinwood Road, in Kendrick Crossing and just up the street from Gastonia Country Club.
The new store will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to a statement this week.
The supermarket on opening day will host a free sampling event starting at 5 p.m., and the rest of the store will be open for business starting then, too.

The new store has features and departments typical of other Charlotte Harris Teeters, including a Starbucks, a floral shop and a sit-down eating area.
“We are looking forward to getting re-acquainted with our Gastonia neighbors, and we cannot wait for shoppers to see their brand new Harris Teeter,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter.
