Good news for grocery shoppers: Southern supermarket Harris Teeter is coming to Baltimore! The grocery chain will be setting up its two-story shop in McHenry Row at Locust Point this December. Doors are set to open on December 7, 2011, just in time for the holiday season. 

To sweeten the deal, rumor has it that the new downtown location will also be the first major supermarket in Baltimore to sell wine.  

With Harris Teeter’s low prices and commitment to broad organic selection and local produce, we’re sure Giant and Whole Foods aren’t thrilled about the news. We, on the other hand, cannot wait to get lost in the 61,000 square-foot location and bask in our savings, and our wine-stocked cart. We just hope parking isn’t a nightmare!
