BY Michael Johnsen

Kroger subsidiary Harris Teeter announced Wednesday that it has entered into an agreement with Supervalu and its affiliates to purchase 10 Farm Fresh store locations in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.

The transaction is expected to be complete in May, 2018. Harris Teeter intends to finalize its remodel and re-opening plans while the stores are closed. Pharmacies at three of the purchased stores will remain open throughout the transition.

“Farm Fresh has a long tradition of operating in Hampton Roads,” Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter, said. “These stores make this an especially attractive transaction for Harris Teeter. We plan to invest in remodeling a number of these locations to better serve our shoppers, and we look forward to continuing to expand our offerings to our Hampton Roads neighbors.”

Harris Teeter is committed to serving the communities where it does business. In 2017, Harris Teeter committed more than $90,000 to its nonprofit partners throughout Hampton Roads. This agreement will enable the company to enhance its existing community partnerships with partners such as Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia; The Food Bank of the Virginia Peninsula; United Way of South Hampton Roads as well as hundreds of local schools – grades k-12 through its Together In Education program.
